COUNCIL CONCURS WITH THE FOLLOWING COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATIONS in presenting them 
to Presbytery: 

a. Church Development 

b. Budget & Finance 

c. Criminal Justice 

d. International Missions 

e. Higher Education 

f. Small Church 

Salem Presbytery has been in touch with the Global Mission Unit since being 
approached by Mwandi project about approval of a new project called Mwandi II. 
Through a group of our churches, we have developed considerable interest and 
excitement about the Mwandi Hospital and the work of Dr. Salvadore de la Torre 
in western Zambia. That excitement has increased with the turning on of the 
electricity at Mwandi Hospital. 

Since the work on the hospital by about seventy-five volunteers from our 
presbytery in 1991, enthusiasm has been growing for a Phase II project. It has 
grown out of the needs expressed by villagers, teachers, leaders of the Jerusalem 
United Church of Zambia congregation, and area government officials. 

This is not an additional health ministry centered at the hospital. Rather, it 
is an outreach project designed to aid the development of village life. It grows 
out of several specific needs identified by our Zambian friends. In terms of 
nutrition , there are significant needs for teaching skills in agriculture, 
including irrigation, crop choices, balanced diet, and food preparation for 
better health (particularly of children) . As regards the pre-school phase, there 
are vital needs for preparation of young children for public school which is 



11 



taught in English. With special attention to language, but also to other 
"headst art-type" concerns, it is hoped that the 20% success rate of Mwandi 
children passing the requirements for secondary schools will improve. The third 
identified need area centers around vocational training for teenagers and young 
adults. This phase envisions skill development in such areas as sewing, 
plumbing, electricity, and computer-word processing. The media center would 
serve the other facets of the project, plus provide opportunities for wholesome 
entertainment for the children and youth. 

The plan also envisions support of a Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) mission worker 
to help get the Center operational and to train Zambians for future leadership. 
This project has been requested by village and UCZ officials through letters from 
the Senior Chief Inyambo Yeta and from the General Secretary of the United Church 
of Zambia, the Rev. Dr. Benson M. Chongo. 

The Council heard from representatives of the Mwandi II Project. Information was 
sought from our Executive Presbyter who traveled to Zambia with that group. He 
talked with the same leaders mentioned in the above description ranging from the 
local church to the United Church of Zambia General Secretary. 

At its April 28, 1992, Meeting, Salem Presbytery adopted the following 
recommendation of the Council: 

"Salem Presbytery commended the Mwandi II Project to the Global Mission 
Unit of the General Assembly for its approval or its recommendation as 
an alternative project." 

The Council has sought the advice of the Hunger and International Missions 
Committees. International Missions recommended Presbytery approval of the 
project and the commending of the project to our churches for funding. 



ACTIONS : 

1. The Mwandi Phase II project to build and staff a Teaching/Learning 
Center in Mwandi, Zambia was endorsed and recommended to our 
churches for their participation, including funding. 

2. Salem Presbytery elected Ralph M. Holt, Jr. to the Class of 1996 of 
the Davidson College Board of Trustees. 

3. Salem Presbytery elected Elder Edward J. Mack, First Church, 
Greensboro as Moderator of the Nominating Committee. 

4. Salem Presbytery approved communion during a Greensboro Marriage 
Encounter Weekend, March 19-21, 1993, with the Rev. Mr. Ben 
Borgerson, PC(U.S.A. ) of Hoopstown, Illinois, administering the 
Sacrament.

HUNGER COMMITTEE 

Charles Cameron, Moderator 

1992 was a very active year for Salem's Hunger Committee. Our scheduled monthly 
meetings were usually well attended and we had many subcommittee meetings. 

Our Committee's one day retreat in May at a rural setting was an inspirational 
time for all and enabled us to know each other better. 

Kaleidoscope had a strong presence of Hunger Committee members taking part. 
Other events of the year included a number of presentations of our Ghana Zaire 
projects in churches during Witness Season. Members were also available for Life 
Style presentations. 

Our Committee sponsored a rural minister and 2 farmers from his congregation to 
attend "Faith in the Land: The Seeds of Hope" conference at Duke Divinity 
School. This experience led to the sponsorship of a farmer's market at the 
October Presbytery meeting at the Glendale Springs Church. 

With the Committee's financial support the Global Mission Unit of PCUSA endorsed 
Charles and Marian Cameron to serve for 3 months as Volunteers in Mission at our 
Tease Agriculture and Development Project. Charles helped develop a realistic 
budget, lay out a work plan for 1993, build a demonstration silo so they could 
make use of the undeveloped corn crop, and plans for the production of poultry 
and livestock, Marian worked with women of the church and developed a program for 
the production of Gari. Gari is a staple food made from Cassava. 

During October we hosted Drs. Harry and Vera Opata of Donkorkrom Hospital, Afram 
Plains, Ghana for a short visit in Salem Presbytery. 

We have had a joint relationship with New Hope Presbytery's Hunger Committee for 
the Ghana and Zaire projects since the new presbyteries were established in 1989. 
We used a lot of time and did a lot of soul searching in redefining our 
relationship with New Hope's Committee. 

It was also time to review and revise our Memorandum of Understanding with the 
Presbyterian Church of Ghana and Kwahu Presbytery where we are supporting the 
Tease Agriculture and Development project. 

In 1992 the following distribution of your contributions to Pennies for 
Hunger/Two Cents Per Meal was as follows: 

Tease, Ghana $39,725.00 

Mbujimayi, Zaire 38,250.00 

Pyatigorsk, Russia 1,950.00 

18 Projects in Salem Presbytery 56,540.00 

Contributions in 1992 from the churches in Salem Presbytery are listed in 
Appendix D, pp. 46-49.

CRIMINAL JUSTICE COMMITTEE 
Michael Askew, Moderator 



The Criminal Justice Committee has been overwhelmingly impressed with the success 
and the faith commitment of an outreach ministry in Winston-Salem. We want all 
presbyterians within Salem Presbytery to know about their work: 

Jeff Coppage, Director, spoke to the Presbytery on behalf of Prodigals Community 
of Winston-Salem. 

The PRODIGALS COMMUNITY is a recovery ministry for people who are substance 
addicted and who have recently been incarcerated, and who are sincerely looking 
for new life and new hope, the Prodigals Community is a structured residential 
program supported by local churches. Its focus is responsibility, learning life- 
coping skills, mutual support and strict accountability, the spiritual journey 
of the 12 Steps, and voluntary corporate prayer and worship. Residents of the 
program pay one-third of their program costs. Churches and individual 
contributions provide the remaining two-thirds. 

Here are some comments by residents of Prodigals House: 

"For me, going back to those streets means death." 

"It startled me. People who have been where I've been treated me with 
love and respect." 

Winston-Salem Chief of Police George L. Sweat said, 

"The Prodigals House does what prisons and jails cannot do - it changes 
the lives of ex-offenders." 

With the hopes that all presbyterian individuals and churches know and care about 
the ministry of the Prodigals Community, the Criminal Justice Committee presents 
the following recommendation: 

We, the Criminal Justice Committee of Salem Presbytery, recommend to our fellow 
Presbyterians the Prodigals Community as an organization worthy of our 
recognition and support. 

In its theology, function, and performance, Prodigals Community makes a vital 
connection between churches and people in need of recovery from substance abuse 
and incarceration. The organization offers, through two existing homes and an 
additional intensive recovery program planned for 1993, a model where love and 
self -discipline are experienced. The Twelve-Step Program, experienced Christian 
staff, and interdenominational board of directors, and Christian volunteers, all 
contribute to new life, not only for the residents but also for the church 
volunteers and interns. 

It is our desire that our fellow Presbyterians recognize, pray for, and support 
the Prodigals House in any way possible. We desire that congregations invite the 
staff to their churches to speak and that they ask how they can help with 
expansion needs. We desire that congregations consider whether the 
organization's approach might help our worshiping communities to bridge a gap 
between the Prodigals sons and the elder brothers. The Father loves us all and 
invites us to be together in the name and spirit of Jesus. 



ACTIONS : 

5. Presbyterians of Salem Presbytery were made aware of the ministry of 
the Prodigals Community, and asked to support them with prayer, 
talent, and any appropriate and welcomed way that one might feel 
called.

6. Salem Presbytery authorized making the mission programs of our 
churches aware of the ministry of the Prodigals Community, and 
asking for their support with prayer, talent, and any appropriate 
and welcomed way that a congregation might feel called. 



INTERNATIONAL MISSIONS COMMITTEE 
Robert Pittard, Moderator 



Robert Pittard reported on the 1993 Salem Presbytery Mission Conference. 

The International Missions Committee recognized the International Mission "Church 
of the Year" and "Person of the Year" at its annual conference recently. 

Thyatira Presbyterian Church of Rowan County was recognized as the International 
Mission Church of the Year in recognition for the work it has done in Mwandi, 
Zambia. With the completion of phase I (the Mwandi Hospital Project), which was 
completely the dream of Thyatira, both electricity and a functioning hospital are 
available to this small community in Africa. This dream was made possible by 
Thyatira 's leadership, financial support, and labor and that of 21 other Salem 
Presbytery churches. 

Thyatira is now developing plans for phase 2 of this project, to include a 
Teaching Learning Center for child nutrition, pre-school development, and 
vocational training. 

Dr. George Carpenter was recognized as the International Mission Person of the 
Year. In addition to his continued involvement of the Salem Presbytery Hunger 
Program, Dr. Carpenter served as Moderator of that committee, the Interim 
Executive Director of the Medical Benevolence Foundation, and routinely works 
with many nations on mission outreach and workcamps. In addition, Dr. Carpenter 
traveled to Ghana in 1988 and 1992 and to the Yucatan in Mexico in 1989. 

Dr. Carpenter is also recognized as the leader who initiated the strong mission 
program at Starmount Presbyterian while he was Pastor at that church. 

The International Missions Committee experienced a record turn-out of 202 people 
at its annual mission conference on January 23. The conference was conducted at 
Starmount Presbyterian Church in Greensboro in honor of Starmount 's emphasis on 
mission 1993 and featured keynote speaker Dr. Clifton Kirkpatrick of the Global 
Mission Ministry Unit.

CHURCH DEVELOPMENT COMMITTEE 
Bill Hylton, Moderator 



Brentwood Presbyterian Church of High Point: 

On Sunday, November 22, 1992, in a congregational meeting called by the 
Session, the congregation voted to ask Salem Presbytery to dissolve the 
church and dismiss the members whom the Session shall have not already 
dismissed to the churches of their choices. A related matter is the sale of 
the property and disposition of the proceeds, which will be recommended 
later. 

Calvary Presbyterian Church of Statesville: 

Calvary Presbyterian Church, Statesville, NC is the outgrowth of the 
merger/dissolution of three other churches in the area. There are presently 
116 members. The organization of this new church and facilities required 
General Assembly loans that have had staggered repayment terms. The present 
balance of the last loan to be repaid is $32,720 and is due subject to 
review and renegotiation by the General Assembly Resources Committee. 

Danbury Community Church: 

Danbury Community Church has been a union Presbyterian-Methodist church for 
ten years. The congregation has been using both existing churches, neither 
of which has a bath room. Recently the property next door to the Methodist 
church was offered at auction. An option to purches was obtained at a price 
of $26,500. The Methodists have agreed to put up $15,000. Title to this 
property will be taken in the name of Danbury Community Church. In case of 
dissolution of Danbury Community Church, Salem Presbytery and the Methodist 
would each own pro-rata shares of the property. 

Northwest Greensboro NCD-Oak Ridge Project: 

Our request for a grant from General Assembly Mission Program ofr $115,000 
over a five year period has been approved. A $5,000 grant has also been 
received from the Richardson Fund of Greensboro. The Steering Committee has 
been reviewing several Pastor Information Forms and is currently visiting 
with prospective ministers. 

Study of African-American Churches & Communities: 

The Mid-Atlantic Synod's Council has approved a Black Caucus proposal for a 
synod-wide study of African-American churches and communities looking toward 
working with presbyteries on strategies for development and redevelopment. 
The first part is a survey of each of the approximately 15,000 members in 
the 200 or so predominantly African-American congregations within the synod. 
The second phase is designed to provide an overview of African-American 
population density and growth projections as related to existing African- 
American churches and to identify areas of high potential for new 
developmetn or redevelopment of African-American ministry. 

Synod has asked for a token support for the project from each presbytery and 
the African-American churches. The CDC has approved the remittance of the 
requested $100 to the Synod of the Mid-Atlantic. Our African-American 
churches are urged to consider the support of this study program. 

Yadkin United, Mebane, NC: 

The Yadkin United Church is titled in the name of Salem Presbytery and is 
presently repaying Church Building loans to the General Assembly. For the 
past four years, they had had a termite and roofing problem that has not 
been addressed because of lack of funds. The church has 42 members and 
support by the Presbytery enabled them to have a part-time minister. 



ACTIONS : 

7. In compliance with the request of the Brentwood Presbyterian Church 
of High Point, Salem Presbytery approved the dissolution of the 
church, when the way be cleared.

control treatment. 



SMALL CHURCH COMMITTEE 
Bill Hayes, Moderator 

-PROPOSALS- 



I. SMALL CHURCH SUPPORT GROUP 100: 
A. RATIONALE: 

1. Because many of our ninety-one small churches in Salem Presbytery 
sometimes feel isolated and detached from the larger church; 

2. Because many of these churches have very limited financial resources 
which render them unable to effect large and unexpected expenses for 
repairs or maintenance or purchase needed worship or education 
supplies without incurring indebtedness or financial hardship; 

3. Because of the prevalent feeling that the solidarity of the 
Presbyterian Church is being eroded by the impersonal trends of our 
society and the old fashioned "neighbor helping neighbor" is being 
lost; 

17 



4. Because of the increased size of the Presbytery, the "neighbor 
knowing neighbor" kind of relationship between the larger and the 
smaller churches is progressively more difficult. 



ACTION: 



13. Presbytery adopted the following recommendation that a Small Church 
Support Group of 100 be recruited from the churches of Salem 
Presbytery to Covenant together to the following: 

1. They will serve for one calendar year. 



2. They will meet as a group four times per year on the "fifth- 
Sunday" afternoon at a small church in need for the purposes of 
celebrating our solidarity in Christ in worship, prayer, old 
fashioned "sing", and the Sacrament of The Lord's Supper, and in 
the taking of an offering designated to the needs of the host 
church. (Each group participant would be encouraged to offer at 
least $25.) 

3. They will also agree to be "prayer partners" with the host 
churches and offer up their needs and thanksgivings to The Lord 
in prayer on a regular basis. 

4. The Small Church Support Committee of the Presbytery receive and 
consider all requests for "visitation" by the group and choose 
the host churches based upon a criterion based on the urgency of 
the need to the life and ministry of the small requesting 
churches . 



5. Where appropriate, they will make their specific talents, gifts, 
and expertise available as a consultant to the host churches in 
addressing their needs, and plans. 

6. Resources such as hymnals, Bibles, Sunday School materials, 
furniture, or office equipment which are replaced or "outgrown" 
by the larger churches, will be made available to the smaller 
churches before their disposal. 



C. EXPECTED RESULTS: 



1. That the congregations will feel needed and important to the larger 
church through the "hands-on" giving concern from so many. 

2. That the approximately $2,000. to $5,000. received in the offerings 
will greatly improve the financial strains of the host 
congregations . 

3. That the 100 group recipients will have a better understanding and 
appreciation for the smaller churches and will reflect that 
knowledge in future appropriate committee and Presbytery action. 



ACTION: 



14. Presbytery approved the following salary support schedule for the 
year 1993: 

Allen Temple* $3,986.00 

Asbury 3,000.00

PERSONNEL COMMITTEE 
Rosa Yourse, Moderator 

The triennial evaluation of Mr. Hewon Han, Associate Presbytery for 
Congregational Life, Salem Presbytery, was conducted by the Personnel Committee 
on January 12, 1993. 

To gather information for the assessment, the Committee sent evaluation forms in 
the Sampler, to Pastors, Educators, and Sessions within the Presbytery to get a 
broad sampling of responses. Additional forms were sent to individuals suggested 
by Mr. Han. 

The review was based on information received from 28 respondents who have known 
Mr. Han since his coming to the Presbytery three years ago under a variety of 
circumstances (i.e. friend, fellow presbytery worker, committee moderator, 
pastors, educators) . Additional insights were derived from members of the 
Personnel Committee, other Presbytery Staff, and Mr. Han's self appraisal. 

Responses were varied and candid. 

Of those who responded, over 88% found Mr. Han Outstanding or Good in the 
categories questioned: Self -Under standing , Motivation , Emotional Strength , 
Adaptability in Diverse Racial /Cultural Situation , Interpersonal Relationships , 
Leadership , and Skill . 

A sampling of the overwhelmingly positive majority of comments expressed 
included:

sense of humor, adaptability and sensitivity 

- Excellent! A joy to work with and an inspiration

planning 

- well organized, knowledgeable and willing — much improved in areas which I 
would have rated as fair a few years ago

- a devoted Christian gentleman, willing and even eager to help when needed 

- his appreciation of and respect for the Presbyterian system of belief and 
organization is well communicated 

- relaxed and open with committees

- excellent in his job — brings many strengths to the position which is a huge 
asset to Salem Presbytery 

When questioned concerning his limitations, the responders commented: 

- none 

- willingness to help every committee and to assist in any assignment 

- would recommend that he consider saying no to some opportunities and thereby 
provide others an opportunity to serve 

- no limitations 

- loaded by Presbytery with too much inside (administrative and committee) 
work 

- would benefit us all by being in the field more often, taking the initiative 
to visit churches and inquire about their program and well-being 

- concerned that he not become burned out in his willingness to do a great job 

It is with great appreciation to Hewon that your Committee is pleased to 
recommend him for a new term. He has served Salem well and grows in his 
effectiveness as each year passes 1

21 



RECEPTION OF HOWARD B. DAY, JR. 



ACTION: 

17. Presbytery approved the committee and floor examination of Howard B. 
Day in accordance with Book of Order G-11.0402. 

a. The Reverend Howard B. Day, Jr. was received into Salem 
Presbytery from Newark Presbytery as a member-at-large. He will 
be living in the Madison area. 

b. His credo which follows, was approved: 

My life has been a journey of faith in God and in 
understanding all that that means. From the days when I was 
very young, I learned from my mother and my father the value of 
what God says to us in the Bible. I still have the Bible my 
grandmother gave me in 1937. I first accepted Christ as my 
Savior in Sunday School in 1939, in the First Baptist Church, 
Allentown, Pa., where my parents belonged. I was baptized there 
at the age of 14 by immersion. Soon after that, I began to 
question many of the things that had been so strongly taught to 
me in a very strict and dogmatic way, as I was greatly 
influenced by the study of science and engineering. In 1947, at 
Cornell University, I came by chance under the influence of the 
Westminster Fellowship in the First Presbyterian Church of 
Ithaca, NY. I attended the services at that church and at the 
Sage Chapel of the University campus and I heard preaching by 
the Rev. Martin Neimuller, who had escaped from Hitler's 
Germany, and by various great theological teachers such as 
Reinhold Neibuhr and William Billheimer. I was exposed to a 
broader understanding of the meaning of life and the meaning of 
my faith. I was very fortunate to hear and to meet Robert 
Frost, the poet. These influences led me to seek a new 
direction in life. I volunteered to join a caravan of the 
Westminster Fellowship to serve in establishing Bible Schools in 
small communities in the Rocky Mountains in the summer of 1950. 
From that experience my faith increased and I received a call of 
the Lord to serve as a minister of the Gospel. Under the care 
and guidance of my pastor, the late Dr. Walter H. Eastwood, I 
attended Princeton Theological Seminary and studied under great 
leaders in the church over the years. 

Now that I have served as an ordained minister for some 37 
years, I have grown to understand more and more of the Lordship 
of Jesus Christ in my life and the need for His saving power and 
grace for all people. I have learned to trust in Jesus and I 
have learned the power and moving of the Holy Spirit in my life. 
I have come to understand and accept the guidance of the Spirit 
through the years of the history and drama of the church. I 
accept the guidance that has been given by the Spirit in the 
confessions of faith and in the church throughout the ages. I 
now teach a class which is studying the confessions of faith, 
currently deeply involved in an adult discussion of the 
Heidelberg Catechism of 1560. The purpose of this class is to 
help all of us grow in understanding our faith today in the 
light of the traditions of those who have gone before us and who 
were faced with many of the same questions that we now face. 
I believe that the church of Jesus Christ exists in the world 
today for the salvation of everyone. Having worked with people 
in many places and in many levels of society, I believe the 
message which we have is for everyone and I feel that we must 
grow together with other Christians throughout the world to find 
the true peace that only comes through Christ. I am glad to be 
a part of the reformed Tradition and all that it means for the 



22 



freedom that God has given us that we may not only know our 
Lord/ but know what it is to love our Creator/ our Redeemer and 
our Guide. 

c. Mr. Day was instructed to sign the obligations required of a 
minister to be enrolled in Presbytery. 



RECEPTION OF MARGRET LEWIS HENDERSON 



ACTION: 

18. Presbytery approved the committee and floor examination of Margret 
Lewis Henderson in accordance with Book of Order G-11.0402. 

a. The Reverend Margret Lewis Henderson was received into Salem 
Presbytery from Mission Presbytery to accept the call of the 
Highland Presbyterian Church as Associate Pastor. The effective 
date is October 19, 1992. 

b. Her credo which follows/ was approved: 

The very fact that I initially became involved in the 
church is an act of God's loving grace. My parents never 
participated in church but at that early age they began dropping 
me off at a local church for Sunday School. In that community 
I encountered nurture, love, support, and acceptance which made 
me feel like a special part of God's family. As an adolescent 
I confessed Christ as my Lord and Savior. He became real to me 
through Scriptures made alive by the Holy Spirit in teaching, 
preaching, and through the loving actions of others. I grew to 
understand that through Christ God offers forgiveness and the 
possibility of a new relationship with God. I am noway worthy 
of that love and fellowship. It is a gift, for we are justified 
by grace through faith. 

As I started College I also began my search for a church 
and became a Presbyterian. There I found a church which 
preached the redeeming and transforming Word of God. The 
congregation lived out that love in their own lives in a 
ministry of compassion and caring to the downtrodden, grieving, 
lost, and to all those who lived a marginal existence within 
that city. Here I began to understand God's strong call for 
justice, peace, wholeness for all people. We are not to be a 
passive people, but an active, challenged growing, risk taking 
community of faith. Here also, I encountered and began to fall 
in love with the connected nature of the Presbyterian Church. 
Through out my ministry I have been encouraged, supported, and 
challenged by my involvement in Presbytery and the greater 
church . 

My next step led me to Union Theological Seminary in 
Virginia. This was a time where my faith truly sought 
understanding, to paraphrase Augustine. I began to explore what 
it meant to be a Christian and a Presbyterian. I was excited as 
I began to develop my theology in conjunction with the essential 
tenets of Reformed faith: I believe that the Triune God is made 
known through the right preaching and teaching of the 
Scriptures, through administration of the Sacraments, and 
through the witness of the community of faith. I believe Jesus 
Christ is made known to us through all these means of grace by 
the power of the Holy Spirit. I see my call encompassing the 
role of teacher, preacher, prophet, and pastoral care giver. 

In my ministry in Texas and in Winston-Salem I see it as my 
call to enable people to feel and know the love and forgiveness 



23 



of God in their own lives. My hope is that as we journey 
together our faith will grow in both in understanding and in 
spiritual depth. We will work together to recognize and to 
follow God's call in the ministry of justice, peace, and 
wholeness in our own lives and in the world around us.

RECEPTION OF ROBERT W. HENDERSON 



ACTION: 

19. Presbytery approved the committee and floor examination of Robert W. 
Henderson in accordance with Book of Order G-11.0402. 

a. The Reverend Robert W. Henderson was received into Salem 
Presbytery from Greater Atlanta Presbytery to accept the call of 
the Westminster Presbyterian Church, Greensboro, as pastor. The 
effective date is February 1, 1993. 

b. His credo which follows, was approved: 

Being raised in Winston-Salem, I found my church home at 
First Presbyterian of Winston-Salem, in which I was active as a 
youth. After high school, I continued my education at Furman 
University where I graduated with a B.A. in Religion. While at 
Furman I was active in First Presbyterian of Greenville, S.C. 
and upon graduation began a fifteen month internship at that 
church. 

24 



From there I ventured to Princeton Theological Seminary 
where I experienced a number of ministry settings while focusing 
my studies in the area Pastoral Theology. When I graduated from 
Seminary, I was called to Eastminster Presbyterian in Stone 
Mountain, Georgia, to serve as their Associate Pastor. After 
two years at Eastminster, the church was gracious enough to 
allow me to further my studies by enrolling in the doctor of 
Ministry program at Columbia Theological Seminary, while 
remaining as their full-time Associate Pastor. 

All this education and experience has been challenging and 
enjoyable. It has also both refined and confirmed my basic 
theological convictions which are best stated as follows: 

- Scripture, comprised of the sixty-six books of the Old and 
New Testaments, is God's Word. Given as a gift of God, it 
is the only rule of faith and practice and is an 
authoritative guide in all matters on which it speaks. 

- Jesus Christ, God's eternal Son, is perfect deity and true 
humanity. In his life and death, Christ demonstrated the 
love of God for all humankind and brought about the basis 
for our forgiveness in atoning for sin and overcoming the 
power of sin and death. 

- Through the preached Word, the Holy Spirit works in the 
lives of individuals, renewing our hearts and enabling us to 
come to repentance and faith in Jesus Christ. Therefore, 
salvation is a total work of God. 

- The church is called to worship God and serve God by making 
disciples of all nations. These goals are reached by the 
teaching and preaching of the Word and by participation in 
the sacraments. They are also reached by striving for 
comprehensive social justice, training all Christians for 
the work of the ministry, and by fellowship and prayer. 

I am firmly committed to the work and worship of the 
Presbyterian Church and feel it is my church home. 

Presbytery approved the establishment of a Pastoral relationship 
between Mr. Henderson and the Westminster Presbyterian Church, 
Greensboro, effective February 1, 1993; approved the following

20. Presbytery approved the committee and floor examination of William 
T. Wing, III in accordance with Book of Order 6-11. 0402. 

a. The Reverend William T. Wing, III was received into Salem 
Presbytery from Coastal Carolina Presbytery to accept the call 
of the Unity Presbyterian Church as pastor. The effective date 
is January 1, 1993. 

b. His credo which follows, was approved: 

In the providence of God, I was raised in the Presbyterian 
Church and came to know Christ Jesus as my Savior and Lord from 
a very early age. I was nurtured by family and church to 
experience God's grace in every area of life. In college my 
biblical faith was challenged and confirmed and I knew the call 
to church ministry. Between college and my seminary years, and 
while in seminary, I felt my ministry was best suited to the 
Presbyterian Church U.S., the denomination of my nurture and 
membership, which in those years was being rejected by many with 
whom I studied. I was ordained by the Presbytery of Holston, 
P.C.U.S., in 1979, as Minister of Word and Sacraments and began 
my work in Kingsport, Tennessee. During these past thirteen 
years, I have not wavered from my commitment to Christ and his 
call for me to serve within our denomination. I anticipate many 
years of service to our church. 

My theological convictions are consistent with our Book of 
Confessions , with special appreciation for the Westminster 
documents and the Heidelberg Catechism. It is to the theologies 
of the Reformation period of Church history that I love to 
return, especially in the light of current concerns. I seek to 
interpret life in terms of the scriptures rather that making the 
Bible conform to my personal preferences or moods. I believe 
this is our Presbyterian stand according to our Book of Order , 
as well. My faith is built upon the Lord Jesus Christ, who 
reveals himself primarily in the scriptures of the Old and New 
Testaments (the Written Word) . I believe this Written Word as 
my perfect guide for all faith and practice, and I submit myself 
to what it teaches. It is my conviction that the Lord calls his 
own out of every nation, social condition, age, and both sexes 
to salvation and service (both ordained and non-ordained) within 
hi3 church. 

As minister of the Gospel (Word and Sacraments) I will 
promote justice, mercy, reconciliation, and hope within the 
Church and the world as long as the Lord desires me to live. 

c. Presbytery approved the establishment of a Pastoral relationship 
between Mr. Wing and the Unity Presbyterian Church effective 
January 1, 1993; approved the following Terms of Call; adn the 
Call was ordered placed in his hands.

BUDGET AND FINANCE COMMITTEE 
John Milholland, Moderator 

1992 Financial Update ; In 1992 Salem Presbytery received a total of 
$1,054,250.41 for its general operation and mission and expended $978,700.80, 
recording a surplus of $75,549.61. From the $75,549.61 surplus, $31,725.17 has 
been sent to the General Assembly, and $19,895.26 has been sent to the Synod of 
the Mid-Atlantic to honor partially the 1992 Mission Commitments to these Bodies. 
An October, 1991, action of Salem Presbytery approved the following: 

"All year-end unused budgeted benevolence available for Presbytery's use 
shall be sent in the following manner: First, commitments to General 
Assembly and Synod shall be fulfilled including restoring the 1/2% 1992 
reduction for General Assembly and Synod." 

The Budget and Finance Committee would like Presbytery to revisit the 1991 action 
regarding the year-end surplus to set aside restoring the 1/2%. WE make this 
request in light of the fact that large commitments have been made to New Church 
Development in 1993. 

Financial Summary : There is a balance of $182,862.06 in previous years "Year-end 
Unspent Funds". This balance can be considered to be made up largely of 
transition funds antecedent presbyteries; $125,000 has been restricted to provide 
reserve cash flow funds. The Budget and Finance Committee recognizes the need 
to begin to establish funding for Office location by designating part of the 
year-end funds for this purpose. 



32 



ACTIONS : 

47. Presbytery rescinded the requirement restoring the 1/2% for 1992 to 
General Assembly and Synod. 

48. The Presbytery designated $50,000 of year-end unspent funds to Salem 
Presbytery Office Relocation. 



1994 Budget Preparation : Responding to the needs of our churches to have the 
Askings of Presbytery late summer, we successfully completed the 1993 budgeting 
process by June, 1992. We will retain this time-line in our 1994 budget 
preparation process. The time-line for the preparation of the 1994 budget is as

HIGHER EDUCATION COMMITTEE 
Milton Spann, Moderator 

During much of 1992, the Higher Education Committee has negotiated with Lees- 
McRae College to develop a Covenant describing a relationship between the College 
and Salem Presbytery. 

The attached Covenant Agreement is the result of those negotiations. The 
Committee believes that Christian Colleges with Presbyterian heritage have a 
vital part to play in the witness and mission of the Presbyterian Church 
(U.S.A.). This Covenant is intended both to affirm our ties with this particular 
institution, as well as, to encourage support and participation by our churches 
in this form of ministry throughout our denomination. 



33 



ACTION : 

49. The Presbytery voted to enter into Covenant relationship with Lees- 
McRae College by adopting the attached Covenant Agreement (Appendix 
K, pp. 72-74). 



GOALS AND EVALUATION COMMITTEE 
Norman Whitney, Moderator 

The Goals and Evaluation Committee has had several false starts in its work since 
Salem's beginning. We believe we are now reconstituted and focused on two 
principle tasks: 

1. To carry out the staffing study requested by the July, 1992, meeting of 
Salem Presbytery 



2. To carry out an evaluation of the effectiveness of the Salem Structure 
as adopted in 1989. 

We believe these two tasks are deeply interrelated. We will be approaching them 
simultaneously. Questions basic to both include: What are the needs we want 
Presbytery to address? Which of these are most needed by Salem? What can we 
afford? We will be addressing those issues in a variety of ways and will be 
reporting findings periodically. 

International Missions Committee has requested that their Committee size be 
increased from 9 to 12 members. They cite a significantly increased workload and 
the need to divide into sub-committees. We believe this need is warranted. We

REPORT OF THE STATED CLERK 



Elder-Minister Balance at Presbytery Meetings 

As required by the Book of Order 6-11. 0101b. I report that we have 208 ministers 
who are resident members of Salem Presbytery and 187 potential elder 
commissioners from our 156 congregations. 

Therefore, there is an imbalance of 21 more ministers than elders. 

Following the plan adopted in 1989 (April 6 meeting) , the following action will 
redress that imbalance. 



ACTION: 



57. Presbytery asked each of the 21 racial ethnic congregations to send 
one additional elder commissioner beginning with the April, 1993, 
meeting and continuing through the First Stated Meeting of 1994. 



37 



Theological Advisory Delegate To 1993 General Assembly 



The Committee on Theological Education of the General Assembly has requested that 
Salem Presbytery elect Lou McAlister East, an inquirer of this Presbytery and a 
member of the Buffalo Church, be elected as a Theological Advisory Delegate to 
the 205th General Assembly meeting in Orlando, Florida, in June, 1993. 



ACTION: 

58. Lou McAlister East was elected as a Theological Advisory Delegate to 
the 205th General Assembly (1993). 



General Assembly Response to 1992 (First Church fReidsvillel) Overture Adopted 
by Salem Presbytery - has been prepared by the Committee on Mission 
Responsibility Through Investment and recommended to the Social Justice and 
Peacemaking Ministry Unit Committee. The Overture posed a question: "...to make 
clarification and give direction as to whether the General Assembly desires to 
accept money and gifts generated directly or indirectly from the tobacco 
industry." The reply will be presented to the 1993 General Assembly meeting. 

Additional Sessional Records Reviewed 

Several Clerks presented their 1991 Minutes for review apart from the area 
gatherings of clerks. 

The Forest Park and Yanceyville Churches reported completion of items pending 
from these earlier evaluations. 



ACTION: 

59. Salem Presbytery approved the Minutes of Sessions of the following

together and the sharing of the Sacrament of the Lord's Supper; 

God blessed Charles and Marian Cameron with safe travels and 
fruitful ministry in the Tease Agricultural and Development Project; 

Jeff Coppage's presentation on the Prodigal House Community ministry 
gave witness to God's life changing work in our midst; 

The Korean Presbyterian Church of Greensboro's youth choir filled 
the sanctuary with songs of praise; 

Salem Presbytery recognized the honorable retirements of Robert 
Freeman and William Chappell giving thanks for their fruitful 
service ad wishing them shalom in their retirements; 

Guy Hunt has sounded the bugle call for the charge of the "Small 
Church 100"; 

John Handley's "gong" kept the meeting moving expeditiously; 

The assembled body of Salem Presbytery is a physical and active

nor free, male nor female, black nor white; 

Therefore, be it resolved that Salem Presbytery thank the Buffalo

MEMORIAL TO 
REVEREND TROY Allen YOUNG, JR. 



Troy Allen Young, Jr. was born in Durham, North Carolina, on May 27, 1924, to 
Troy Allen and Agner Jewell Brooks Young. He was a "Smith-Smith" man, a graduate 
of Johnson C. Smith University with a B.A. and Johnson C. Smith Seminary (then 
also in Charlotte) with a B.D. Troy was a smart man, and what is especially 
striking about his master's thesis, written in June of 1950, is an emphasis on 
what has become known as Black liberation theology. Most scholars acknowledge 
Dr. James H. Cone's Black Theology and Black Power , published in 1969, as the 
seminal work of that field. Yet, Troy A. Young, Jr.'s thesis, almost two decades 
earlier centered on the prophet Amos as he related to labor and race relations 
throughout the South and the United States in the immediate post World War Two 
era. Young pointed out that God still held a plumbline of judgment and justice 
for God's people throughout the twentieth century, racked with exploitation of 
workers in general and African Americans (then "Negroes") in particular. 

Rev. Young was pastor at Beulah Presbyterian Church in North Wilkesboro from 1949 
to 1957. From that fair city he also plucked a lovely and talented bride, 
Cordelia Vaughn Reynolds Young. They have two grown daughters (Cynthia Jenkins 
and Leah Young of San Antonio), two grown sons (Troy Allen Young, III of St. 
Louis and Jonathan Young of Macon), and five grandchildren (Troy A. Young, IV and 
Stephanie Young of Chicago, Joel Young of St. Louis, and Terr ice Marion and 
Richard Marion of Macon) . 

He was the founding pastor of Dellabrook Church in Winston-Salem and served from 
1957 to 1969. Thus, he served both Black congregations in the old Winston-Salem 
(later Concord, then Salem) Presbytery. He stood out, not only as the only 
African-American pastor in that presbytery, but by way of sterling character and 
striking carriage. Young was a large man with a deep bass voice, and when he 
spoke he had something to say. He was a founding member of Winston-Salem's first 
interracial human relations committee. Dellabrook' s continuing emphasis of 
Chr istocentr ic , Biblocentric human rights grows largely out of his theological 
vision. Dellabrook named him pastor emeritus in 1986. 

Rev. Young was Dean of Chapel at Stillman College in Tuscaloosa from 1969 to 
1984, yet always maintained his membership in this presbytery. From his position 
at that Presbyterian institution of historically Black higher education in 
Alabama, he served the church at every governing body level. 

Troy received numerous awards and honorary degrees for his exemplary work. He 
was honorably retired in 1985 due to medical reasons, having been seriously ill 
most of the 1980 's. Back in Winston-Salem, he filled Dellabrook' s pulpit 
admirably whenever called upon and able. When Dellabrook hosted Stillman' s 
excellent choir in 1990, not a dry eye was left in the sanctuary when Professor 
Williams closed with "a song for Troy". 

Regularly, the current pastor at Dellabrook would meet for lunch with Pastor 
Young either in his home or, when possible, would take him out. Always Young 
provided as much ministry and more wisdom than he received. Troy, at the evening 
of his days, would look forward to "going home" to see his deceased parents. He 
died quietly and peacefully at his home on Tuesday morning, May 26, 1992, the day 
before his sixty-eighth birthday. Dellabrook' s pastor joins his widow, children, 
grandchildren, other family, two church families, an entire college community, 
and a host of friends throughout the nation in mourning his loss, celebrating his 
life and seeking to live out his legacy. In sure hope of Jesus' resurrection 
and, therefore, our own, this is lovingly submitted in Troy's living memory. 

Submitted by the Rev. Carlton A. G. Eversley

APPENDIX H 



STATE OF SALEM 
by John M. Handley 
February 6, 1993 



Salem Presbytery is a lively place! There are about 60 folk just northwest of 
here in the Oak Ridge area pushing the Church Development Committee to hurry up 
and get the new church under way there. Two weeks ago over 200 attended the 
International Mission Conference at Starmount. Last month the Evangelism 
Committee proved me wrong. I have often said that ministers don't read their 
mail. Evangelism introduced "A Guide for Assessing Your Church's Evangelism 
Program'* — an excellent resource. They did it by sending a tongue-in-cheek letter 
implying that the reason for evangelism is scalp-hunting for new dollars to 
balance the budget. The Evangelism Committee wanted to get your attention. THEY 
DID — don't miss the point by missing the congregational assessment tool! 

A new hands-on mission project is perking for Mwandi Zambia. Charles and Marian 
Cameron just got back from a three month trip to Ghana to strengthen our witness 
there. There are talented, committed ministers and elders all over the area — 
challenging/inspiring their congregations to new faithfulness. MANY ARE MAKING 
A DIFFERENCE WITH A STRONG MISSION EMPHASIS. There are dozens of ministries of 
compassion and justice. 

I would like to go on — there are many such stories to highlight. But not 
everything is sweetness and light! There are those who sincerely believe that 
Salem is too big — with too much staff at too much cost. Several of our churches 
are struggling with their anticipated income for 1993 and are considering 
benevolence cuts. Only a few churches are growing in numbers. Two are 
considering being dissolved. The familiar patterns of Presbyterian structure 
above the session are in the midst of significant and turbulent change. God is 
doing a new thing among us. 

A CHANGE IN FAMILIAR WAYS: SOME ARE PESSIMISTIC. They see only DANGER and 
despair. OTHERS see an OPPORTUNITY for NEW FORMS OF FAITHFULNESS I A major study 
of Presbyterians was reported in the Survey May/ June, 1992, in a series entitled, 
"The Presbyterian Presence" (Milton Coalter, John Mulder, Louis Weeks). The 
final volume centers on reform which is a familiar word for Presbyterians: 
"Reformed Always Reforming" is our slogan. The article states that REFORM BEGINS 
WITH REPENTANCE. REFORM MEANS openness to GROWTH/EVANGELISM; reemphasizing 
EDUCATION/NURTURE; recovery of THEOLOGICAL VISION; and recognizing the 
OPPORTUNITY of this new day. The Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) IS changing. We 
will either standby or participate. It is an excellent article — well suited for 
discussion. 

Salem is entering a vital time of reform as well. The Goals and Evaluation 
Committee is looking at Salem's effectiveness in carrying out its original vision 
of SHALOM. We're a lively group — are we faithful to God's vision? Central in 
that study is the staffing study called for in 1992. Expensive item — STAFF. 

That question and others will focus on THE QUESTION: Is Salem playing a VITAL 
ROLE in developing the life and witness of 156 churches to the living presence 
of Jesus Christ? We're busy but are we doing things that matter ? We're lively 
but are we strengthening the worship/f ellowship/leaming/witness of your church ? 

Grayson Tucker , a long time Presbyterian seminary professor once said: "WE NEED 
A TWO-ARMED CHURCH WITH STRONG HEART." The two arms are the mission of 
evangelism and the mission of social action focused outward to serve. The strong 
heart is mission of worship, preaching, nurture, and education focused inward to 
strengthen . 

Presbyterians have had a vision of connectedness of the whole church at its best- 
-our way has involved us in being ONE — connected as a church and connected with 



61 



other churches as partners. At its best the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A. ) , our 
way of being church, has emphasized WHOLENESS: Evangelism AND Mission; Spiritual 
Life AND earth care across lines of division — ONE in Christ — able to disagree in 
love. 

It's time to stop playing church. The world is too strong. Our witness is: 
JESUS IS LORD. Shalom means whole — as God intended. THAT'S US — SALEM 1 

Amen (let it be so) I

APPENDIX K 



A COVENANT AGREEMENT 
BETWEEN 
SALEM AND LEES-MCRAE COLLEGE 



I. PURPOSE OF THE COVENANT 

The purpose of the covenant is to define the nature and scope of the 
relationship between Lees-McRae College and Salem Presbytery. The term 
"covenant" is used to indicate that the College and the Presbytery are 
related to each other in a unique way and as a way of expressing the 
seriousness of the mutual commitments. 

II. HISTORY OF THE RELATIONSHIP 

Lees-McRae is a product of the ministry of the Reverend Edgar Tufts 
who, upon graduation from Union Seminary in 1897, was sent to the 
remote village of Banner Elk as a missionary of Concord Presbytery. 
Recognizing the inadequacy of educational opportunities, the Reverend 
Tufts scon began teaching children in his home. In 1900, with 
financial support from the Banner Elk Presbyterian Church and friends, 
he opened a boarding school for elementary-age girls, composed of 12 
pupils and 1 teacher. The school was first called Elizabeth McRae 
Institute in honor of Mrs. Elizabeth McRae, a presbyterian Home Mission 
worker who emphasized the importance of educating females. The name 
was later changed to Lees-McRae Institute in honor of Mrs. S. P. Lees 
of Kentucky and New York, a supporter of educational ministries in 
Appalachia and a benefactor of the school in Banner Elk. 

A companion school for boys was opened in Plumtree in 1905 called the 
Lees-McRae Boys School. Later, the name was changed to Plumtree School 
for Boys. When fire destroyed the Plumtree campus in 1926, the two 
schools were consolidated in Banner Elk. In 1929, two years of college 
were addecl and the secondary grades were gradually deleted. Lees-McRae 
maintained junior college status until 1989, when it became an 
accredited senior college. 

From the beginning, Lees-McRae was supported by Concord Presbytery, in 
whose boundaries it was located. When the Synod of Appalachia was 
formed and the area in which Lees-McRae is located became Holston 
Presbytery, Holston and Concord jointly supported and governed 
Lees-McRae. In 1982, Concord Presbytery shifted its support and 
governance to the Synod of North Carolina. When the Synod of North 
Carolina became a part of the Synod of the Mid-Atlantic, the new synod, 
by Article of Agreement, assumed the responsibilities of the former 
Synod of North Carolina. 

III. GOVERNANCE OF THE COLLEGE 

Lees-McRae is governed by a Board of Trustees consisting of 35 members, 
eight of which are elected by the Synod of the Mid-Atlantic and six of 
which are elected by the Presbytery of Holston. The Board of Trustees 
has responsibility for all the affairs of the College. 



72 



IV. PURPOSE OF THE COLLEGE 

As stated in its catalog, the purpose of Lees-McRae is "to provide 
sound academic curricula which encourage intellectual, spiritual, 
physical and social growth. Permeating the entire purpose is the 
desire to create at Lees-McRae a Christian ccmraunity. . .that would 
result in each student's developing a balanced sense of personal 
values, integrity and moral worth." 

V. RESPONSIBILITIES UNDER THE COVENANT

4. To maintain a faculty which will earnestly and freely pursue the

6. To make its facilities and faculty available to the Presbytery. 

7. To provide an annual report by which members of the Presbytery 
wiH be informed of goals, progress, and financial condition, as well 
as of solicitations; such as the Annual Fund, Capital Campaigns, etc. 

8. To be open to visits by and counsel from the Presbytery. 

9. To refer to its Presbyterian heritage in its promotional

and William F. Stephens, who wish to transfer into Salem Presbytery. They have

RECEPTION OF DWIGHT LEE BARKER 



ACTION: 

20. Presbytery approved the committee and floor examination of Dwight 
Lee Barker in accordance with Book of Order G-11.0402. 

a. The Reverend Dwight Lee Barker was received into Salem 
Presbytery from Coastal Carolina Presbytery. He is honorably 
retired minister and living in Crumpler, NC. 

b. His credo which follows, was approved: 

The Church is God's people working together as one 
community of faith. We are God's people. All that we do as 
individuals and as the Church is done because we do not belong 
to ourselves, but we belong to God. As God's people we worship 
God in all that we do. 

We are a community of faith. We are a people with a 
specific past, present, and hope for the future. We are the 
people of God as demonstrated in Jesus Christ and as revealed to 
us in God's Word, the Bible. Therefore, our life as a community 
and as an individual is evaluated in terms of Christ's life, 
death, and resurrection. We worship together and search 
scripture to prepare us better to be God's people living our 
faith. 

In my ministry, I have always been guided primarily by two 
portions of scripture. First, Ephesians 4:4-6, "There is one 
body and one Spirit, just as you were called to the one hope of 
your calling, one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and 



84 



Father of all, who is above all and through all and in all." 
Second, Mark 10:45, where Jesus states, "The Son of Man came not 
to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for 
many." We, the Church, are many people drawn together with a 
common purpose. We are drawn together as one people to worship 
God, proclaim the message of salvation through Christ, and to 
serve each other and the world for God. 

There are many important issues of contemporary life that 
the Church must address if the Church is to demonstrate the 
dynamic role of faith as the guiding force of modern life. One 
issue is of particular importance to me due to the emphasis 
placed on that issue in scripture. That issue is the 
economically disenfranchised. 

One of the few places in scripture where Jesus specifically 
addresses the question of who will gain access to the kingdom 
and who will not is Matthew: 31-46. According to Jesus, those 
who will inherit the kingdom will feed the hungry, give drink to 
the thirsty, welcome the stranger, clothe the naked, and visit 
the sick and imprisoned. Those who inherit the kingdom will 
personally take part in this ministry. 

How does the Church respond? The Church responds by 
organizing opportunities for members to participate in 
ministries of compassion similar to those listed in Matthew 25. 
The Church will not leave such work to the civil government or 
hope that some charitable institution will provide for those in 
need. Churches can organize food banks, build homes with groups 
such as Habitat For Humanity, or establish a prison ministry, 
just to name a few. How should the Church respond to the world? 
Through the mandates of scripture. What are the mandates of 
scripture? According to Matthew 25, they include active 
participation in ministry to and with the economically 
disenfranchised . 

c. Mr. Barker was instructed to sign the obligations required of a 
minister to be enrolled in Presbytery. 



RECEPTION OF J. DAVID KIVETT 



ACTION: 

21. Presbytery approved the committee and floor examination of the 
Reverend J. David Kivett in accordance with Book of Order G-11.0402. 

a. The Reverend J. David Kivett was received from Western Kentucky 
Presbytery for the purpose or accepting the call as Pastor of 
the First Presbyterian Church of Reidsville. The effective date 
is March 8, 1993. 

b. His credo which follows, was approved: 

The psalmist wrote, "The Lord reigns, let the earth 
rejoice." That in a few words is what I believe. The Lord our 
God is the sovereign God - Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. The 
eternal God is our Creator, our Redeemer, our Judge, and our 
Sustainer. All of life (from the highest of highs to the lowest 
of lows) is lived out within a parentheses of God's love. 

Faith then is more than intellectual assent or private 
preference. It is trust; trusting the steadfast and sure love 
of God as it is made known in Scripture and in the person and 
work of Jesus Christ. 



85 



I believe in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. In Jesus of 
Nazareth, we know the self revelation of God (the Word made 
flesh) . He taught us in word and in deed what God intends for 
human life; feeding the hungry, healing the sick, reaching out 
to the outcast. He lived, died, and lives again for us. In the 
cross and empty tomb our sins are forgiven and we are reconciled 
to God. 

Jesus Christ came to save sinners. The reality of our sin 
cannot be debated. "All have sinned and fall short of the glory 
of God." We are totally depraved ... there is no part of our 
being immune from the disease we call sin. So we stake our 
claim as Christians in the greater reality of God's grace. In 
the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ we know a love 
so great that not even death can separate us from it. 

My life and ministry are response to that love initiated by 
the grace of God in Jesus Christ. To respond means to seek 
God's will in Scripture, sacrament, and service. 

I believe the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments to 
be the word of God, our rule of faith and practice. The 
sacraments of the Lord's Supper and baptism speak to us in 
another language, a language of experience, bringing us together 
as the people of God and strengthening us for service. And to 
seek God's will in service we move from the faith statement "I 
believe" to faithful service saying, "I will." It means serving 
God by serving neighbor. 

That response we call faith is best summarized by the first 
question of the Shorter Catechism, "What is the chief end of 
humanity? Humanity's chief end is to glorify God and enjoy God 
forever. "

RECEPTION OF WILLIAM F. STEPHENS 



ACTION: 

22. Presbytery approved the committee and floor examination of the 
Reverend William F. Stephens in accordance with Book of Order G- 
11.0402. 

a. The Reverend William F. Stephens was received from North Alabama 
Presbytery for the purpose of accepting the call as Pastor of 
the Trinity Presbyterian Church of Elon College. The effective 
date is April, 1993. 

b. His credo which follows, was approved 

My faith is the disposition to act upon trust in God who is 
my vindicator. I confess that I have required more than one 
conversion, for as well as being converted to Christ, I have 
needed to be converted to move from distrust to trust, from 
stagnation to generativity, from fear to hope on a daily basis. 

I find that being God's "creature," being created in the 
image of God, yet being ashamed and wounded, is an 
acknowledgement that only in Christ are we made whole and 
destined to satisfaction and bliss. Belief in God's Providence 
has allowed me to claim my humanity because I feel owned by the 
Author of life. 

I believe that conversion from lesser powers, which are as 
overwhelming as the water was for Peter, is necessary to any 
root or radical reordering. In a word, I am a deep believer in 
the education of the soul. I foster knowledge of alternatives 
where the Birth of the Living Lord impacts human contexts which 
are seemingly barren. 

I take the Apostle's Creed as the framework of my belief 
system for it embodies the witness of God's life among mortals. 
I believe in God, the Creator and the sustainer. I believe that 
Jesus Christ reveals God — to know Christ is to know God. I 
believe that the Holy Spirit lives with us frequently unnoticed 
and unrecognized, the Giver of Life seeking us. I believe in 
the Holy Catholic Church (ekklesia), the Church in the Biblical 
tradition. I believe in the Resurrection: That God in Christ 
cared so much as to give his life for ours despite our turning 
away and rejection: I believe in God who cares beyond the grave 
to give us eternal life. 

I believe that behind all this work wrought by God who is 
in Christ there is an intent ionality, an obvious conclusion, won 
by the event of the cross. This witness of the cross is a 
commitment of God (John 3:16) which warrants our commitment to 
the Biblical witness and surrenders to an appropriate lifestyle. 

I find the Presbyterian (PCUSA) style of polity consistent 
with the reformed heritage that I understand reflects the fact 
that God is always beyond where man has arrived in understanding 
and living the truth; therefore we are all subject to 
correction. I accept the Scripture as God's rule for faith and 
practice. 

My theology stems from my belief in the covenant-making God 
who is uniquely revealed to us in the incarnation of Jesus 
Christ. His incarnation demonstrates God's divine initiative 
(Luke 1:26-38; John 1:14). Thus, in God's redemptive act, the 
record of Jesus' life suggests that he identified with persons 
in every aspect of life, from suffering to celebration, from 
poverty and defeat to the triumph of resurrection. 

The incarnation means divine participation in human 
affairs. God did not become human in isolation from life, but 
in a community of persons in which all the joys and struggles on 



87 



life were present. He was born in a manger, slept, drank, 
worked with disciples, ministered to those in all walks of life 
and faced rejection. 

His participation in the day-to-day life of the fishermen, 
the sick and the helpless, the rich and poor, allowed 
transformations where persons were made whole. Symbols of this 
wholeness are interwoven in his daily giving of his life. Since 
Christ's service was one of healing, reconciliation and mutual 
ministry, I believe that the church may become in the power of 
the Holy Spirit a healing community.

theological school, and has been examined by the Examinations Committee of 
Presbytery. 



RECEPTION OF DALE DAVIDSON 



ACTION: 

23. Presbytery approved the committee and floor examination and sermon 
of Dale Davidson. 

a. Dale Davidson was received and will be ordained by Salem 
Presbytery so that she may accept the call of the Presbyterian 
Church of the Cross as Associate Pastor. The effective date of 
the call is April 5, 1993. She has been a candidate under the 
care of Salem Presbytery. 



88 



b. Her credo which follows, was approved: 

I believe in God, sovereign and almighty, creator of heaven 
and earth, ruler of all people and things; God who has already 
reconciled the world to Godself through Jesus Christ and 
continues to work that reconciliation out through God's people. 

I believe in Jesus Christ, God's only Son, who lived among 
us, died for our salvation, was resurrected in triumph over sin, 
and calls us to live, as he did, in response to God and in 
service to others. 

I believe in the Holy Spirit, who teaches us an 
understanding of God's word, nurtures us in faith, and guides us 
into reconciled relationship with God and each other. 

I believe that the Old and New Testaments reveal who God 
is, through God's acts in history, and that they continue to 
speak God's word and will to us today. 

I believe that God's grace comes to us sinners through 
God's covenant. God calls us and engages us into fellowship 
with Godself. The sacraments — baptism and the Lord's Supper — 
are signs of God's grace and initiative toward us, and means of 
sealing us into covenant. God calls us also into covenant 
relationship with other people, with God as center and 
organizing principle of those relationships — expecting us to be 
honest and faithful and loving toward each other just as God is 
with us. 

I believe the Church is a manifestation of God's covenant 
relationship: a community within which God's word is proclaimed 
and heard and followed; in which work and worship are bound 
together as service to God; and in which God's people take 
seriously the notion that all are children of God. The Church 
is called to be the Body of Christ — embodying God's covenantal 
faithfulness, teaching us how to live it and how we are judged 
by it. 

I celebrate and uphold the Presbyterian system of 
representative, connect ional, constitutional government as one 
means of being the Body of Christ. I appreciate the guidance 
and framework for faith and practice which the Book of Order 
provides to ministers and members of the PCUSA. 

c. Presbytery approved the establishment of an Associate Pastoral 
relationship between Ms. Davidson and the Presbyterian Church of 
the Cross effective April 5, 1993; approved the following Terms 
of Call; and the Call was ordered placed in her hands.

SEXUAL MISCONDUCT POLICY 

Ann Jahnes reported for the Task Force. Salem Presbytery appointed this Task 
Force on a sexual misconduct policy composed of Elders LaDonna McCarther (Edward 
Webb), Margaret Elliott (Trinity [W-S]), and Pam Hendricks (Fieldstone) and 
Ministers Ed Brammer, Moderator (Retired), Ann Jahnes (Yadkinville) , and James 
Henderson (Calvary) . Our task has been to study and adapt the General Assembly 
of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) Policy and Procedures on Sexual Misconduct 
to the needs of Salem Presbytery. 

Salem Presbytery took the following actions: 



ACTIONS : 

24. The General Assembly Policy and Procedures Paper was adopted as the 
provisional policy of our Presbytery. (See Appendix G, pp. 115- 
162.) 

25. Our Task Force has reviewed this policy statement carefully and 
believes that it provides an adequate guideline for beginning to 
move toward a more applicable policy designed specifically for our 
Presbytery. Such action will put a workable policy in place while 
we proceed to make it better. We believe this to be a process which 
has already included study of a previous version of the General 
Assembly Policy and we will propose further ways of examining this 
policy along with our proposed first draft of the policy proposed 
for our Presbytery. We have carefully reviewed the work of several 
other presbyteries in making such adaptations. 

26. We are asking sessions of our local congregations (a) to review this 
Paper in comparison to the proposed Salem Policy with the view to 
making whatever changes are necessary to strengthen and make useable 
the proposed Salem document, (b) to make suggestions on how this 
paper might be approved and/or clarified. This would welcomed 
either in written comments addressed to the Sexual Misconduct Policy 
Task Force, P. 0. Box 1763, Clemmons, NC 27012, and/or to attend 
one of the two public hearings which we propose to be held on May 
16, 1993, at the First Presbyterian Church of Statesville, 3-5 p.m. 
and at the St. James Presbyterian Church, Greensboro, 7-9 p.m. 

27. It is our hope that we will never need to implement the provisions 
of this policy; however, the experience of other presbyteries across 
the General Assembly would indicate that it is imperative that we be 
able to respond immediately, effectively, and compassionately should 
any such incident be alleged against any of the church leadership 
noted in these policy statements. Please study carefully and let us 
hear from you. We anticipate presenting revisions of the Proposed 
Salem Policy and Procedures at the July Meeting of Salem Presbytery.

come ; 



91 



Be It Therefore Resolved that the Salem Presbytery at its stated meeting 
on the twenty-seventh day of April in the year of our Lord nineteen

Amidon and Suzanne Jordan. George Pike, Co-Director of the Bicentennial Fund for 
the General Assembly addressed the Presbytery. 



CHURCH DEVELOPMENT 
Bill Hylton, Moderator 

In 1991 the Salem Presbytery Church Development Committee set as its goal 
to begin three (3) new churches in the next five years. One such development was 
targeted for the North Northwest quadrant of Guilford County. We are very 
excited about this new church development project in the newer residential area 
near Greensboro. 

Our most recent New Church Development study identified the Northwest part 
of Guilford County as being "ripe" for a new church. All Presbyterian Churches 
in the Greensboro area were invited to support this project and their response 
was positive and most encouraging. In the Fall of 1991 a Steering Committee was 
formed and a tract of land purchased shortly thereafter. During the past nine 
months, the Steering Committee has been actively seeking an Organizing 
Pastor /Evangelist for this project. The committee received more than thirty PIFs 
and seriously considered more than eighteen candidates. Three persons were 
interviewed for the position and an offer has been made to one of the three. 
The terms of the Call offered are as follows: 

PASTORAL CALL 

Salem Presbytery of the Synod of the Mid-Atlantic of the 
Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) on behalf of the New Church Development of 
Northwest Guilford County (PIN #64720), being well satisfied with your

the Holy Spirit as one whose service will be profitable to the spiritual

Sacrament of the Lord's Supper as frequently as once a month. 

That you may be free to devote full-time to the ministry of the

ACTION: 

29. The Pastoral Call for an Organizing Pastor/Evangelist for the 
Northwest Guilford County NCD Project was approved. 



REPORT OF PRESBYTERY COUNCIL 
N. N. Fleming, III, Moderator 



Your Council has met twice since the last Stated Meeting of Presbytery. 
MATTERS PRESENTED FOR INFORMATION: 



1. Council has been discussing ways of improving future meetings of Salem 
Presbytery. Several suggestions were discussed. Among them: 

- starting the day on a devotional, inspirational note 

- moving the Examinations/Preparation/Committee on Ministry to the 
morning hours; 

have been included in the proposed docket. 

2. Council received as information a report from the Office Location 
Committee. It is identifying its task and procedures and is 
investigating sites, costs, building possibilities in the Clemmons area. 



93 



ACTIONS REPORTED; 



1. Established the following Bicentennial Fund Followup Committee: 

Rev. George Carpenter 

Mrs. Carol Carpenter (Starmount) 

Mr. Murray White (First [High Point]) 

Rev. David Henry (Vandalia) 

Mrs. Eleanor Godfrey (First [W-S]) 

Rev. Dusty Fiedler (Clemmons) 

Mr. James Bullock (Highland) 

Mrs. Rosa Yourse (St. James) 

2. Accepted a pulpit scarf and stole as a gift from the Church of Ghana. 
They are to be used as appropriate at Presbytery meetings on the pulpit 
and by the preacher of the day. 

3. Approved a proposal to participate in another Miami rebuilding project 
with the Episcopalians May 1-6. 

4. Approved the request of the Presbyterian Home and Family Services, Inc. 
to display and distribute materials and Zuni Peanuts (and additional 
sales as requested) . 

5. Approved appointment by the Council Moderator of a task force to study 
and recommend a policy regarding the solicitation of funds within Salem 
Presbytery with the provisions that the membership be at least 5 and 
that it report to Council by the June 24 meeting. 

6. Approved appointment by the Council Moderator of an Urban Ministry Task 
Force to recommend Salem's response to the invitation by Synod to 
participate in an Urban Ministry Partnership (to include possible Salem 
structure amendments and responses to requests for support from Urban 
Ministry programs within our bounds ) . 

7. Approved allocating $2,000 from Council's program pool for participation 
in Synod's Racial Ethnic Partnership student project (to place racial 
ethnic students in churches for supervised training) . 

8. The Minutes of the February 6, 1993, Seventeenth Stated Meeting of Salem 
Presbytery were approved. 

9. Authorized its Moderator to appoint a committee to develop policies 
regarding letters of advocacy in the name of Salem Presbytery. 

10. The Council was apprized of arrangements initiated by several 
individuals in our area for a visit to the Triad by the Reverend Ms. 
Jane Spahr of California. Ms. Spahr drew national publicity when the 
Downtown Presbyterian Church of Rochester, NY, issued a call to her to 
serve as an Associate Pastor. An emphasis of her ministry would have 
been to serve the gay and lesbian community in Rochester. 

Ms. Spahr acknowledges her lesbian sexual preference. She was approved 
by Genesee Valley Presbytery to accept the call. A complaint was lodged 
by members of that presbytery which eventually resulted in the General 
Assembly Permanent Judicial Commission ruling blocking the completion of 
the call. They cited interpretations adopted in 1978 and 1979 by the 
General Assemblies of the two previous denominations before reunion. 

That Permanent Judicial Commission decision has itself sparked 
considerable debate and controversy. Several Overtures will be 
considered by this year's General Assembly meeting in June in Orlando, 
Florida. 



94 



Your Council discussed carefully the impact and interpretation of Ms. 
Spahr's visit to the Triad. Several options were discussed to clarify 
Salem Presbytery's guidance to its churches in both this controversial 
upcoming visit and the "long range" need to follow through the design 
projected in Salem's 1991 Overture to the General Assembly concerning 
the Human Sexuality paper. 

Believing that Ms. Spahr's presence in the area at this time will cause 
more confusion and controversy than it will promote understanding and 
harmony on this divisive issue, the Council decided to take the 
following actions: 

a. Being aware of the projected visit to the Triad of the Reverend Ms. 
Jane Spahr in May, at the invitation of individuals in our area, the 
Salem Presbytery Council acknowledges her presence without any 
endorsement or encouragement; and 

b. Requested the Social Justice Committee to plan a process to lead the 
Presbytery in studying the human sexuality issue in Salem Presbytery 
in 1993-94. 

11. Approved the request from the Clemmons Presbyterian Church that they be 
allowed to borrow up to $350,000 for construction financing and up to 
$300,000 for long-term financing, on such terms as are commercially 
prudent . 

12. Approved an Emergency Offering, asking churches in Salem Presbytery to 
receive offerings to aid two families in the Korean First Presbyterian 
Church who suffered recent tragedies. 

13. Approved a tentative Docket for the April 27, 1993, Meeting of Salem 
Presbytery, to be revised, if needed, and presented by the Moderator of 
Council to Presbytery for adoption. 

COUNCIL CONCURS WITH THE FOLLOWING COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATIONS in presenting them 
to Presbytery: 

1 . Peacemaking 

2. International Missions 

3. Hunger (See Appendix H, pp. 163-167.) 

4. Church Development 

5. Sexual Misconduct Policy Task Force (see Committee on Ministry) 



ACTION: 

30. Salem Presbytery elected Mr. J. M. (Jute) Ramsay, Jr. of First 
(Asheboro) and Mr. Murray White of First (High Point) as Trustees 
for Lees-McRae College, Class of 1996 from Salem Presbytery. 



ACTION: 

31. Salem Presbytery elected Mrs. Barbara Fulp (Elkin) and Mr. Gene H. 
Faust (Siler City) to the Presbytery Nominating Committee, Class of 
1995. 



The Office Location Committee has been concentrating its search for land or 
buildings in the Clemmons area. 



95 



One option involves locating a site and construction of a building. Several 
sites have been examined. Two potential sites have been selected and discussions 
are now underway with the owners or their agents. 

One owner has indicated that he would be willing to donate approximately one 
acre, with one stipulation. Salem Presbytery would construct an office building 
for its own use and when Salem Presbytery decides it no longer needs the property 
and offers the property for sale, the current owner and/or his heirs would have 
the first option to purchase the property at its appraised price, less the value 
of the land. 



The one acre site is a part of a larger tract that he is holding for future 
development as a business park in Clemmons. 

The Town of Clemmons has plans to adopt a water shed ordinance on July 1st. The 
proposed site would be in the water shed area. After the ordinance is adopted, 
the cost of development and surveying the site would increase considerably. A 
Clemmons official has indicated that we should have the site surveyed and 
transferred to the Presbytery prior to July 1st. 

Should an agreement be reached and the site chosen as the best potential location 
for a proposed building, immediate action will be required. The following action 
is necessary to provide prompt response if the way be clear. 



ACTION: 

32. Salem Presbytery authorized its trustees to accept the donated site 
and provide the donor with an agreement to grant him and/or his 
heirs first option to buy the improved site at its appraised value, 
less the land value; if and when offered for sale. 



WORSHIP AND COMMUNION 

At 11:30 a.m. the Presbytery joined in a service of Worship and Communion. The 
preacher was The Reverend George Pike of The Bicentennial Fund. Worship leaders 
were Rev. Phyllis Kort, Associate Pastor, First (Burlington) and Rev. Charles 
Williams, Pastor, First (Burlington). The organist was Robert Burns King, 
Organist and Choirmaster, First (Burlington). 



LUNCH 

The Presbytery was recessed for lunch at 12:30 p.m. with prayer. 



AFTERNOON SESSION 

The Moderator reconvened the Presbytery at 1:30. The prayers of thanksgiving and 
intercession were led by the Reverend Katy Reed and the prayer of dedication for 
the Two-Cents-A-Meal Offering by Charles Cameron and Katy Reed. 



ECUMENICAL VISITOR 

The Ecumenical Visitor, Father James Plavcan of the Blessed Sacrament Catholic 
Church, was introduced to the Presbytery; and he was given the privilege of the 
floor and spoke briefly to Presbytery.

PROPOSAL FOR SPECIAL OFFERINGS AT 
INSTALLATIONS OF MINISTERS 



ACTION: 

35. Salem Presbytery requested its sessions to authorize at each service 
of worship which celebrates either the installation of a previously 
ordained minister or the ordination and installation of a Candidate 
for the Ministry of Word and Sacrament, that a special offering be 
taken to be used to help and support the presbytery's aid program 
for those inquirers and candidates responsible to the Committee on 
Preparation for Ministry and the 1% Theological Education Fund. 



Statement To Be Read or Printed for Ordination/installation 
Service Regarding Offering 

The Installation of a new minister for your church does not occur often. 
Congregations privileged to take part in an Ordination very seldom have that 
opportunity. Salem Presbytery rejoices with you in this special time of 
celebration 1 

God continues to call women and men to the Ministry of Word and Sacrament in the 
Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.). At the same time, the costs of their preparation 
for ministry are increasing. It regularly takes the combined resources of the 
Candidate's own family, their home church and presbytery, as well as their 
seminary scholarship fund, to meet the costs. In addition, our denomination's 
1% for Theological Education Fund helps support our 11 theological institutions. 

Salem Presbytery has asked you to take this special offering at your service of 
welcome to your minister. 

One half will be entered in your church's name to support those 
Inquirers and Candidates presently in their preparation who are from our 
Salem Churches. 

The other half will be given in your church's name to the 1% Fund for 
Theological Education.

CHURCH DEVELOPMENT COMMITTEE (continued) 
Bill Hylton, Moderator 

The Dellabrook Church is a 91-member congregation located in Winston-Salem, 
North Carolina. The church strives to maintain its self-support status and keep 
current other financial obligations. Currently this church is repaying two loans 
to the Presbytery which will be satisfied within the next three years. The 
church is current on these loans and has increased its benevolence by 18% over 
the last 4 years. Until June 1992, the minister lived in the church manse. 
Presently, the manse is vacant and needs a new roof before it can again become 
habitable; it is anticipated that rent (or money from the sale thereof) will 
provide income for the minister's current housing allowance. 



ACTION: 

36. Salem Presbytery approved of a grant to the Dellabrook Presbyterian 
Church in the amount of $2,800 for replacement of the manse roof. 
(In the event the manse is sold, grant amount must be returned to 
the Presbytery. 



WORKTRIP - HURRICANE ANDREW 

Bob Button and Chis Rodenbough reported on the worktrip to Florida to help in the 
rebuilding in the aftermath of Hurricane Andrew. 



INTERNATIONAL MISSION COMMITTEE 
Robert Pittard, Moderator 

Charles and Marian Cameron of our Presbytery were made aware of the following 
situation during their 3 months as Volunteers in Mission to the Tease Agriculture 
and Development Project on the Afram Plains, Ghana, in 1992. The village of 
Tease has a population of 3,000; if the surrounding areas are included the number 
is 6,000. On May 24, 1992, the members of Salem Presbyterian Church, Tease, 
celebrated the elevation of their church to a district church. 

The pastor of a district church is responsible for nurturing all the churches in 
the district. The pastor at Tease is the only ordained pastor in the district. 
There are many small churches in the district and they are being served by a 
catechist or an evangelist. These churches depend on this one local pastor for 
the administering of the sacraments and for nurturing. Because they are not 
receiving these services that they so badly need, the people are becoming 
discouraged . 

Tease is in Kwahu Presbytery. The presbytery does not have money to support a 
pastor so Tease has a teacher as part-time pastor. This means he teaches in the 
school Monday through Friday and the Ministry of Education pays his salary. He 
has only Saturday and Sunday for his responsibilities as pastor. Kwahu 
Presbytery has a new very capable chairman and we saw the work he accomplished 
in the short time we were there. We are sure he is willing to build up the 
presbytery and strengthen the Tease Church. However, he has no funds to support 
ministry in this church. Salem churches' ministry is crucial to the continued 
progress of our Hunger Committee's projects in the area. 

The salary for a full time pastor is $90 (U.S.) a month. The International 
Mission Committee recommends a plan to provide salary for a full time pastor at 
the Salem Presbyterian Church of Tease. We thereby request of Council permission 
to bring the following motion to the floor of Salem Presbytery's April meeting. 



98 



ACTION: 

37. Salem Presbytery endorsed and recommended to its churches the 
funding of a project to provide the Tease Church to provide with 
salary for a full time pastor with the following plan: It will be 
a five year plan with a 20% decrease in funding each year with the 
understanding that this does not involve any presbytery budget 
money . 



PRESBYTERIAN MEN 

John Harail reported to Presbytery on the changes taking place in Presbyterian 
Men's work. 



PERSONNEL COMMITTEE 
Rosa Yourse, Moderator 

The Personnel Committee conducted a six-month performance review of the Reverend 
Dr. A. Michael Warren on March 23, 1993. 

In an informal discussion, Michael Warren shared with the Committee the 
activities he has been involved with in carrying out his responsibilities as 
Associate Presbyter for Care and Development of Leadership. 

The review was very satisfactory and the Committee commended Michael Warren for 
his job performance for the past six months. The Personnel Committee believes 
that Salem Presbytery is indeed fortunate to have Michael Warren on our staff. 



ACTION: 

38. Salem Presbytery commended the Reverend Dr. A. Michael Warren for 
his work during the past six months, and a prayer of thanksgiving 
and intercession was offered for him asking God's continued 
blessings on his work. 



EVANGELISM 
Robert M. Howard, Moderator 

Robert Howard reported for the Committee. 



BILLS AND OVERTURES 

Steve Moss, Moderator, reported to the Presbytery the work of the Committee 
regarding the following Overture from the First Church (Winston-Salem) : 

An Overture to the General Assembly 

Whereas, we of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) are a people of the Word for whom 
the Holy Scriptures are the authoritative rule for faith and practice and the 
vehicle through which God has revealed normative truth for every age; 

Whereas, these same Scriptures, along with the historic confessions of the 
Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) proclaim the sinful condition of all human beings 
and call all to repentance and to "go and sin no more" and thus experience and 
enjoy God's forgiveness and restoration; 



99 



Whereas, for Christian people behavior of any kind which is incompatible with 
these same Scriptures and confessions invites discipline, especially if the 
behavior is overt and without repentance; 

Whereas, when in the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) congregations ordain elders and 
deacons and presbyteries ordain Ministers of Word and Sacraments, they do so for 
the whole church and ont solely for ministry within their own life and 
boundaries; 

Whereas, the General Assemblies of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) and her 
predecessor bodies have historically determined through these same Holy 
Scriptures, and confessions of the Church, the standards for the ordination of 
elders, deacons, and Ministers of the Word and Sacraments, and, these standards 
declare that the personal conduct of all church officers is to be compatible with 
the Christian faith and life; 

Whereas, the General Assemblies of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) have 
historically and consistently determined through the standards set forth by the 
Scriptures and confessions what are to be identified as sins; and 

Whereas, believing that ordination is not a right given to any and all, but 
rather a call extended by the Church under the guidance of the Holy Spirit upon 
those who meet the standards set forth by the Scripture and confessions of the 
church: 

Therefore, the Presbytery of Salem overtures the 205th General Assembly of the 
Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) to continue to define and maintain the official 
standards for the ordination of all Ministers of Word and Sacraments, elders and 
deacons that require conduct that is compatible with Christian faith and life as 
defined by Scripture and confessions, and thereby specifically sustains and 
affirms "the definitive guidance" requested of the 1978 General Assembly and 
reaffirmed by succeeding Assemblies with overwhelming support. 



ACTIONS : 

39. Presbytery approved the following recommendations of the Bills and 
Overtures Committee: 

That the Overture be amended to include the addition of the words 
"and at the same time to direct its Theology and Worship Unit (or 
its successor entity) actively to study emerging scientific, 
Biblical, and theological studies bearing on the subject of 
homosexuality and ordination" at the end of the Overture. 

That the Overture be sent to the Stated Clerk of the Presbyterian 
Church (U.S.A.) as a communication from Salem Presbytery. 

That the Commissioners from Salem Presbytery to the 205th General 
Assembly be requested to place the overture before the General 
Assembly as a commissioner's overture, if they can in good 
conscience do so. 

40. In light of the fact that it is too late to get an Overture before 
this meeting of the General Assembly on June 2-9, Salem Presbytery 
approved the changing of the word "Overture" to "offer its guidance 
to" and requested the Presbytery Stated Clerk to send it to the 
Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) Stated Clerk along with the 
communication that the vote was not unanimous.

APPENDIX F 



RECEIVING MINISTERS FROM OTHER DENOMINATIONS 

1. The COM or a subcommittee of COM shall meet with a minister from another 
denomination interested in becoming a PCUSA minister to discover the extent 
of their PCUSA experience and the reasons why that person wants to change 
denominations. If the experience and reasons are acceptable, it shall be 
determined whether the denomination is in correspondence with the PCUSA. If 
not, then proceed with #2. If so, proceed with #3. Upon receiving request 
from the minister to be received as a member of Salem Presbytery, a 
peer/mentor relationship shall be established by the COM. 

2. An inquiry should be placed in the care of the Committee on Preparation For 
Ministry for appropriate testing, study and experience before COPM 
recommends to COM that the person is ready for a call. Such testing 
includes : 

a. Evidence of a baccalaureate degree or its equivalent from an accredited 
college or university and a theological degree from an institution 
requiring not less than 3 years residence. COPM reserves the right to 
conduct their own inquiry to deem acceptable the institution from which 
the theological degree was earned. 

b. Evidence of having successfully taken the standard ordination 
examinations of the PCUSA. 

c. Receive from prior denomination, or ordaining body, a record of 
ordination in good standing. 

3. Receive from prior denomination a record of ordination in good standing. 
Ordinarily, a record of successful completion of the ordination exams is 
required. Exceptions may be made for particular expertise in one or more 
areas covered by the ordination exams. 

4. All ministers from other denominations shall get permission from the COM in 
order to circulate his/her PIF among churches in Salem Presbytery. 

5. The COM, with the Examinations Committee, shall examine the minister in 
order to discover awareness of racial and gender diversity. 

6. With the Examinations Committee, the COM shall examine the minister on 
Christian faith and on views in theology, the authority of scripture, the 
sacraments and the system of government of the Presbyterian Church. 

7. The COM shall approve the call and recommend that Presbytery approve the 
call as a call to a validated ministry. 

8. Receive dismissal from the judicatory of membership, removal from rolls of 
former denominations and hear minister's willingness to give up all claims 
to ministry in that denomination. Be satisfied that the minister stands 
ready to affirm the ordination vows required of all ministers of the PCUSA. 

9. Recommend that Presbytery recognize the minister's previous ordination to 
the office of minister upon the expression of the minister's acceptance of 
the obligation of the ordination vows required of a minister the BO, and 
upon accepting the obligation of the ordination vows that the minister be 
enrolled as a member of Presbytery. 

10. Recommend that Presbytery appoint a commission to conduct a service of 
installation or recognition. 



114 



Unusual cases: 



There may be exceptions to the above policy that lead the COM to believe that 
it is appropriate to recommend a minister from another denomination be received 
immediately for specific work. In that case it would be appropriate to use the 
extraordinary clause, thereby calling attention to the presbytery that this is 
an unusual procedure to be approved with extra care.

1 General Assembly of 

2 the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) 

3 Sexual Misconduct Policy and its Procedures 

4 I. Policy Statement 

5 It is the policy of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) that 

6 all church members, church officers, non-member employees, and 

7 volunteers of governing bodies and entities of the church are to 

8 maintain the integrity of the ministerial, employment, and 

9 professional relationship at all times. Sexual misconduct is not 

10 only a violation of the principles set forth in Scripture, but 

11 also of the ministerial, pastoral, employment, and professional 

12 relationship. It is never permissible or acceptable. 

13 II . Background 

14 A. Purposes of Policy 

15 The attached policy and procedures regarding sexual 

16 misconduct by persons in positions of religious leadership derive 

17 from an understanding of the public and spiritual trust held by 

18 the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.). In adopting this policy and its 

19 procedures, the church is concerned to offer guidelines that will 

20 assure appropriate steps are taken to investigate and remedy 

21 incidence of misconduct, to care for all persons involved, and to 

22 provide information to help prevent future instances of abuse. We 

23 are also aware we must consider not only the needs of 

24 accuser /victims and offenders, but also those of congregations, 

25 governing bodies and entities, and those in employment settings 

26 where misconduct has occurred. A principal criterion for our work 

27 has been: Will the policy serve the Church by guiding and 

28 enabling us to act for justice, healing, and restoration? 

29 The need for a denominational policy on sexual misconduct by 

30 ministers or other persons in positions of religious leadership 

31 is painfully apparent. The incidence of reported cases is 

32 -sobering. Some presbyteries have multiple cases pending. Some 

33 statistical evidence suggests between 10 and 23 percent of clergy 
3 4 of all faiths, nationwide have engaged in inappropriate sexual 

3 5 behavior or inappropriate sexual contact with parishioners, 

3 6 clients, or employees with whom they have a professional 

37 relationship. 1 The toll of suffering resulting from such behavior 

38 is staggering. The legal consequences for the denomination are 

39 enormous. We face a crisis terrible in its proportions and 

40 devastating in its implications. We recognize that a primary 

41 barrier to responding appropriately to sexual misconduct is 

42 because often religious leaders are not able to recognize and 

43 believe that such behavior happens. In a context of pastoral or 

44 religious trust, it is hard to recognize abusive behavior because 

45 we do not expect to see it. Rather, just as in families where 

46 incest occurs, we often find that we choose not to see. 2 



119 



47 When that occurs, we too are complicit, whether knowing or 

48 unknowingly, in the abuse. Social and religious consciousness 

49 has made us much more aware of this grievous problem, and 

50 accordingly, we must assume responsibility for appropriate 

51 intervention and prevention strategies. 

52 By the adoption and use of this sexual misconduct policy and 

53 procedures, the General Assembly seeks to offer guidance in the 

54 kind of behavior appropriate to the role and responsibilities of 

55 religious leadership, to suggest procedures for accountability 

56 when allegations of misconduct are made, and to assure 

57 appropriate physical, emotional, and spiritual care for all 

58 involved. The goals of the policy are: 

59 1 . To set and enforce standards of ethical behavior 

60 consistent with reformed tradition and secular law. 



61 2 . To recommend procedures for inquiry and effective 

62 response to allegations of sexual misconduct and protection of 

63 persons in the church. 

64 3 . To assure that the personal, emotional, spiritual, 

65 pastoral, legal, and financial needs of all affected parties are 

66 addressed in cases of sexual misconduct in the Church. 

67 4 . To serve as a guide for the prevention of sexual , 

68 misconduct in the church through appropriate training and 

69 supervision of employees, education of laity and clergy, and i 

70 nurturance of the spiritual, emotional, and physical well-being ' 

71 of all God's people. 

72 5 . To suggest alternative means by which instances of sexual 

73 misconduct may be remedied without recourse to church judicial 

74 process where possible and appropriate. 

75 6 . To assure that all necessary steps are taken to conform 

76 to the requirements and protections guaranteed under the Form of 

77 Government and the Rules of Discipline . 

78 7 . To recommend personnel policies to be used in the 

79 administration of employer/employee relationships within the 

80 governing bodies and entities of the Church other than at the 

81 General Assembly level, and to provide such personnel policies 

82 for all General Assembly entities and units. 

83 8 . To serve as a model for policies for adoption by related 

84 institutions of the Church, including colleges, universities, and 

85 theological institutions. 

8 6 9 . To further the peace, unity, and purity of the Church 

87 through justice and compassion. 



120 



^88 This policy and its procedures reflect a keen awareness that 

™ 89 child sexual abuse, as well as many instances of sexual 

90 misconduct with adults, represents forms of compulsive behavior. 3 

91 Typically such persons will minimize, rationalize, and deny their 

92 inappropriate behavior. Offenders will continue in such behavior 

93 unless and until they are confronted and receive treatment. Apart 

94 from intervention, these offenders will not recover control of 

95 their actions. 

96 Sexual abuse of adults or children causes one of the most 

97 severe levels of self -alienation and, therefore, of spiritual 

98 alienation. This policy and its procedures, makes it possible to 

99 respond pastorally to alleged offenders because it puts in place 

100 a mechanism for confronting their self -destructive behavior. 

101 Healing requires breaking their denial. Only then can the 

102 restorative process of repentance begin. In a pastoral sense, 

103 intervention represents a significant opportunity to restore 

104 spiritual as well as emotional healing for offenders though this 

105 is, admittedly, a long-term process. In addition, the quick, 

106 informed presence of Response Management Teams is intended to 

107 assure that those who are innocent of the allegations receive 

108 informed and sensitive care. The process will not leave 

109 unresolved charges to haunt one forever. This policy and its 

110 procedures include an effort to help assess the seriousness of 

111 the offense and, therefore, to help shape an appropriate 

112 restorative response for the offender. 

^.13 This policy and its procedures make possible a pastoral 

114 response to the adult victim who has survived sexual misconduct. 

115 These survivors have experienced the profound betrayal not only 

116 of one whom they trusted — often at a moment of vulnerability - 

117 - but also the betrayal of one who represents the symbolic power 

118 of a representative of God and the Church. These survivors are 

119 often deeply ashamed, fearful of the offender, and fearful of the 

120 blame and rejection they may receive from the congregation or 

121 church agency in which they work. They feel isolated. These 

122 emotions may inhibit them from reporting for a number of years, 

123 or forever. Moreover, there is a painful overlap between 

124 survivors of child sexual abuse and those abused as adults. This 

125 is known as re-victimization. In such cases, disclosure and 

126 recovery are all the more difficult. However, some survivors will 

127 eventually recognize and name their, abuse. This frees them to 

128 seek help and to find the courage and support to break the 

129 silence, shame, guilt, and fear imposed upon them. It is at this 
13 point that the survivor may choose to call her or his abuser to 
131 account. It is impossible to predict whether and when this will 
13 2 occur in the life of a survivor. 



121 



13 3 This policy and its procedures assure that there will be a 

134 quick, informed, and skilled response to the accuser/ victim" s 

13 5 choice to break the secrecy that has kept them in bondage and 

13 6 perpetuated the abuse. The assurance is that emotional and 

137 spiritual guidance will be found and made available as quickly as 

138 possible. 

13 9 Too often adult victims have found that their worst fears of 

140 rejection have become realized in their congregation or employing 

141 entity. This policy and its procedures become a visible sign that 

142 an institution which has been complicit in the survivor's 

143 victimization will now act positively to advocate for her or his 

144 healing and for justice. Provision is made for readily 

14 5 accessible, clear information so that accuser /victims may know 
14 6 where to turn at the point they decide to disclose the sexual 

147 misconduct. Through quick discernment of the facts and through 

148 preventive education, the congregation or employing entity may be 

149 less likely to respond by blaming the victim. 

150 This policy and its procedures also help to assure the 

151 church's pastoral response to the most vulnerable, those who are 

152 survivors of child or adolescent sexual abuse by religious 

153 leaders. For them, betrayal of trust comes before they have 

154 developed an adequate sense of self or an adult sexuality. Their 

155 spirituality is also seriously affected by abuse of the symbolic 

156 power of a religious leader. 

157 This policy and its procedures make a significant advance 

158 pastorally, and for justice, by recognizing that most children 

159 will not break the secret of abuse while a child. 4 Most will 

160 repress that abuse until later experiences or when developmental 

161 factors allow recall. Others may not repress, but instead may 

162 need the security of adult status in order to dare and speak. 

163 Adult victims may repress their abuse or not be able to come 

164 forward for years following the abuse. For this reason, the Rules 

165 of Discipline state that there is no time limit placed on the 

166 filing of charges in cases where sexual abuse is alleged. (D- 

167 7.1100.) 

168 This policy and its procedures clearly avow that abuse is 

169 wrong, thus breaking the destructive cycle of denial and self- 

170 hatred that traps survivors in their shame, fear, and danger. The 

171 spiritual alienation that usually results from the sexual abuse 
17 2 of children and adolescents is doubly difficult when the 

173 perpetrator is a religious leader. This policy and its procedures 

174 on sexual misconduct intends to provide quick, informed, and 

175 caring responses to assure survivors due process and empowers 

176 them in the same context where their own power and identity were 

177 previously denied.

Congregations and employing entities also need to receive 
pastoral responses- when an incident of sexual misconduct occurs 
within them. This policy and its procedures provides a means to 
confront the denial that predictably occurs in these contexts. 
Just as incest in a family means members are in complicity if 
only in not seeing and not believing, so in congregations and 
employing entities important questions need to be pursued and 
experiences need to be processed. This policy and its procedures 
names and describes sexual misconduct in ways that will help 
reduce vulnerability and exploitations. Systemically it is clear 
that if the experience of exploitation and the resulting grief 
and anger are not worked through, the congregation or entity 
continues to suffer and may, in fact, be revictimized because its 
denial is not confronted. 

The denomination 1 s integrity and ministry are at stake in 
the way it responds to the reality of sexual misconduct by those 
entrusted with religious leadership. This wound in the body of 
Christ cannot be healed easily, but healing can occur when a 
process occurs that seeks justice and restoration as set forth in 
this document. 

Since those experiencing crises in their own personal or 
professional lives are more vulnerable to acting in inappropriate 
ways, governing bodies need to be ever more caring of their 
ministers' personal and professional lives. The more knowledge 
of its ministers that a presbytery or employing entity has, the 
more responsive that body can be in averting potential crises. 
The governing body or entity needs to remember that dealing with 
racial ethnic persons requires cultural sensitivity. Obviously, 
the more care able to be given to all staff and volunteers the 
better, not only in terms of prevention of sexual misconduct, but 
also in nurturing those who all too frequently receive too little 
nurturance themselves. 

B. Standards of Conduct 

As God who called you is holy, 
be holy yourselves in all your conduct. 

• • • • 

Tend the flock of God that is your charge, 
not under compulsion but willingly, 
not for sordid gain but eagerly, 
not lord it over those in your charge 
but be examples to the flock. 

• • • • 

You know that we who teach 
shall be judged with greater strictness. 

1 Peter 1:15; 5:2; James 3:1, NRSV 



123 



223 The ethical conduct of all who minister in the name of Jesus 

22 4 Christ is of vital importance to the Church because through these| 

225 representatives an understanding of God and the gospel's good 

22 6 news is conveyed. Their manner of life should be a demonstration 

227 of the Christian gospel in the church and the world. (G-6,0106) 

228 The basic principles of conduct guiding this policy are as 

229 follows: 

23 1. Sexual misconduct is a violation of the role of pastors, 
231 employees, volunteers, counselors, supervisors, teachers, and 

23 2 advisors of any kind who are called upon to exercise integrity, 

23 3 sensitivity, and caring in a trust relationship. It breaks the 

23 4 covenant to act in the best interests of parishioners, clients, 

23 5 co-workers, and students. 

23 6 .2. Sexual misconduct is a misuse of authority and power 

237 which breaches Christian ethical principles by misusing a trust 

238 relation to gain advantage over another for personal pleasure in 

239 an abusive, exploitative, and unjust manner. If the parishioner, 

240 student, client, or employee initiates or invites sexual content 

241 in the relationship, it is the pastor's, counselor's, officer's, 

242 or supervisor's responsibility to maintain the appropriate role 

243 and prohibit a sexual relationship. 

24 4 3. Sexual misconduct takes advantage of the vulnerability of 
245 children and persons who are less powerful to act for their own 

24 6 welfare. It is antithetical to the gospel call to work as God's J 

247 servant in the struggle to bring wholeness to a broken world. It " 

248 violates the mandate to protect the vulnerable from harm. 
249 

25 III. Meeting the Needs of All Involved 

251 In cases of sexual misconduct there are needs that have to 

252 be met for the good of all persons, groups and entities. For this 

253 reason, a Response Management Team will manage the process of 

254 meeting these needs, which will vary with the circumstances. In 

255 cases of sexual misconduct, these are the needs of 

256 accuser/ victims and their families (if any) , the accused and 

257 family (if any) , employing entities, congregations, and governing 

258 bodies: 

259 A. The Needs of the Accuser /Victim 

2 60 The governing body, employing entity, and Response 

261 Management Team shall assure that adequate treatment and care are 

2 62 available for alleged victims of sexual misconduct and their 

263 families. The accuser /victim or family sometimes is so angry and 

264 alienated from the church that offers of help may be perceived as 
2 65 insincere or as attempts at a cover-up. If the accuser/ victim or 
2 66 family at first refuses, the church should continue to offer 



124 



^67 help. Above all the church should not act in a self -protective 

lies manner by ignoring the accuser/victims and their families. 

269 The extent of the damage to the accuser /victims of sexual 

270 misconduct will vary from person to person, and is influenced by 

271 such factors as the degree or severity of abuse, the age and 

272 emotional condition of the victim, human dynamics, and the 

273 importance of one's religious faith. The governing body, entity, 

274 and response management team is to assume in all cases that the 

275 accuser/victim has been wounded by the experience. 

276 Feelings of guilt, shame, anger, mistrust, lowered self- 

277 esteem, unworthiness , and feelings of alienation from God, self, 

278 the religious community, and family are frequent injuries 

279 suffered by accuser/victims. It is important for the Response 

280 Management Team to be sensitive to the victim's pain and need for 

281 healing, and to act by making appropriate pastoral care 

282 available. 

283 . The following are some of the needs of the accuser/victim: 

284 To Be Heard and Taken Seriously 

285 From the time that the accuser/victim is first able to 

286 indicate that sexual misconduct has occurred, that person should 

287 receive immediate attention and serious consideration from all 
ftp 8 8 church representatives. 

289 To Receive Pastoral and Therapeutic Support 

290 The accuser/victim may require spiritual and professional 

291 assistance as a result of sexual misconduct. The Response 

292 Management Team should offer to help arrange for such support 

293 from a pastor and therapist, if the accuser/ victim desires. 

294 Discussions with such people would be confidential, privileged 

295 conversations. 

296 To Be Informed About Church Process and Progress With Regard to 

297 the Accusation 

298 One member of the Response Management Team should be the 

299 church contact person for the accuser/victim. Frequently, this 

300 contact person will give the accuser/victim information as to 

301 what is happening in the church as a result of the accusation. 

3 02 To Receive Legal Advice 

303 The Response Management Team should suggest that the 

3 04 accuser/ victim might benefit from independent legal advice. 

3 05 (Legitimate claims might be more effectively pursued and flimsy 

306 or false claims discouraged.) If requested, the Resource 



125 



3 07 Management Team should suggest ways in which independent legal 

3 08 advice can be obtained. 

3 09 To Be Assured of An Advocate of One's Own Choosing 

310 A accuser/victim may need continuing moral support from one 

311 individual who is present while the church process deals with the 

312 accusation. This advocate may be a relative, friend, or someone 

313 suggested by the Response Management Team. This advocate could 

314 speak for the accuser /victim, if necessary. 

315 To Receive Restitution 

316 The accuser/victim may simply wish to report sexual 

317 misconduct but often some form of restitution is wanted. The 

318 Response Management Team can suggest that the accuser/victim work 

319 out with the individual's pastor or therapist exactly what 

3 20 restitution is sought - for instance, financial compensation, 

321 removal from office of the accused, admission and apology from 

3 22 the accused, etc. 

323 To Be Assured That Justice Will Be Pursued 

324 The accuser /victim needs to be told by the Response 

3 25 Management Team, and shown by the processes of the church, that 

326 justice is being pursued through fact finding, truth telling, 

3 27 confrontation, and agreement which may include removal or 

3 28 temporary exclusion of the accused from office or adjudication of* 

3 29 the complaint. f 

330 To Receive Healing and Reconciliation 

331 In addition to specific forms of restitution mentioned 

3 32 above, the accuser /victim needs to receive a sense of healing and 

333 reconciliation with all concerned - the self, the family, the 

3 34 church and, ideally, the accused. The Resource Management Team 

335 can help bring this about using the church's processes and 

33 6 resources. While the above are needs of the accuser /victim, one 

3 37 recognizes that all of these needs may also not be met through a 

3 38 reasonable handling of a specific case, but may only occur over a • 

3 39 lengthier period of time. All of these needs, however, should be 

3 40 taken seriously and compassionately, and the rights of the 

341 accuser /victim respected. 

3 42 B. The Needs of the Accused 

3 43 The governing body or entity shall offer treatment and care 

3 44 for the accused as well as alleged victims and families. If the 

345 accused is a minister, this is the responsibility of the 

346 committee on ministry. (G-11.0501) 



126 



347 Feelings of guilt, shame, anger, mistrust, lowered self 

348 esteem, depression, unworthiness , and feelings of alienation from 

349 God, self, the religious community, and family are often 

350 experienced by the accused. In addition, there may be fear of job 

351 loss, incarceration, and indignation if an allegation is false. 

352 When a person is acquitted of charges, it is important for 

353 the governing body or entity to see that the acquittal is 

354 disseminated as widely as possible within their power, unless 

355 doing so would further injure the person falsely acquitted. 

3 56 A church member or officer accused of sexual misconduct (the 

357 accused) usually has need of the following under this policy and 

358 its procedures document: 

3 59 Information About the Charges 

3 60 When an allegation of sexual misconduct has been received by 

3 61 the Response Management Team, it may notify the accused of the 

3 62 allegations. If the Team does notify the accused, it shall do so 

3 63 in writing and may advise the accused to have no further contact 

364 of any sort with the accuser, the victim, or the victim's family. 

3 65 It shall warn the accused that any statements made to the Team 

366 may be used against the accused in later proceedings. 

3 67 If the Team does contact the accused in writing of the 

368 allegations/ it should explain the process used by the governing 

369 body when an allegation of sexual misconduct has been made and 

370 the options available to the accused. It shall recommend that the 

371 accused seek legal advice immediately since the allegation could 

372 result in church discipline or civil .or criminal court action. 

373 Later, if the allegation proceeds to the initiation of a 

374 disciplinary case, provisions of the Rules of Discipline . Chapter 

375 VII, Disciplinary Cases, shall be followed. 

376 Legal Advice and Assistance 

377 The accused may seek legal advice from any source, but it 

378 should be noted that in church disciplinary or remedial cases "no 

379 person shall act as counsel who is not a member of the 

380 Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.)" (D-8.1000) 

381 Stated clerks should maintain a list of Presbyterian lawyers 

382 who are willing to consider representing parties in church 

383 disciplinary cases. 

384 The accused is responsible for his or her attorney fees but, 

385 if an allegation proceeds to the initiation of a disciplinary 



127 



38 6 case and the accused is unable to employ counsel, the accused may 

337 request appointment of counsel under the provisions of D-8.l000b. 

388 Personal Care 

389 Whether the allegations about the accused are eventually 

3 90 found to be true or not, the accused deserves to be treated with 

391 Christian kindness and respect. 

3 92 In addition to recommending that the accused seek legal 

393 advice, the Response Management Team may suggest that the accused 

394 seek spiritual support or professional counseling with someone 

395 whose conversations would be recognized by courts as confidential 

396 and privileged communication. The Team may suggest names of 

3 97 impartial clergy or therapists to the accused, but should not 

398 itself engage in counseling because their conversations would not 

399 be confidential and will actually be reported to others. People 

4 00 in staff positions, such as presbytery executives or stated 

401 clerks, should not engage in personal counseling of the accused 

402 because of their potential involvement in disciplinary process. 

403 Assistance in Relating to Session and Congregation 

404 When an allegation of sexual misconduct is made against a 

405 ministers, the congregation is often aware of a problem. Rumors 

406 fly despite attempts at confidentiality. This is particularly 

407 true if disciplinary process is initiated. 

408 In all contact with the accused, care must be taken that his 

409 or her rights to fair procedures under the Book of Order will not 

410 be violated, fief ore each and every conference with the accused, 

411 the committee on ministry shall inform the accused of the right 

412 to remain silent and to be represented by counsel (G-11.0502 j, 

413 D-7.0900). It has authority to do so under G-11.0502i and G- 

414 11. 0502 j, but both the committee on ministry and the Response 

415 Management Team, as part of the electing government body, must be 

416 careful to "take no further action on the case" themselves if the 

417 matter has been transmitted to a permanent judicial commission. 

418 (D-4 . 0200 , 2c) At present, there is no constitutional prohibition 

419 against presbytery taking necessary action in matters which are 

420 affected by the case as long as presbytery does not intrude upon 

421 the case itself. 

422 Each situation will be different, requiring tailor-made 

423 assistance by the committee on ministry. The Response Management 

424 Team may alert the committee on ministry initially to the 

425 anticipated needs of a particular congregation and recommend 
42 6 expert resources. The Team itself should not become directly 

427 involved with the session or congregation. 

428 Economic Security and Care For Family of Accused 



128 



429 When an allegation of sexual misconduct: has been made 

43 against a minister, the economic security of the accused is 

431 directly threatened, along with reputation, career, and family 

432 relationships. Again, the committee on ministry can be of 

433 assistance. 

434 The Response Management Team may alert the committee on 

435 ministry to the possible spiritual, emotional, and financial 

436 needs of the family of the accused and recommend expert 

437 resources. The Response Management Team should not itself become 

438 personally involved with trying to meet these needs. 

439 C. The Needs of a Congregation in a Context of Sexual 

440 Misconduct 
441 

442 The governing body, employing entity, and response 

443 management team should be aware of the problems a congregation or 

444 employing entity may experience following allegations of sexual 

445 misconduct by a minister, employee, or volunteer. The allegations 

446 may polarize the congregation or organization, damage morale, 

447 create serious internal problems, and even limit the trust a 

448 congregation may place in succeeding pastors. Efforts should be 

449 taken to recognize and identify the problems and heal any damage 

450 that may be done to the congregation or organization. 

451 When there is sexual misconduct on the part of a minister, 

452 non-ordained staff, or volunteer in a particular congregation, a 

453 number of needs unique to that congregation will emerge since 

454 sexual misconduct impacts congregations in different ways. 

455 Therefore, these needs will not necessarily emerge in the same 

456 sequence in each situation. Depending on the parties involved in 

457 the sexual misconduct, some of the needs may not emerge. In any 

458 event, those managing the church's response to the sexual 

459 misconduct will want to know that the following needs may emerge: 

460 Pastoral Care 

461 Members and staff of the congregation will need pastoral 

462 care. If it is the pastor who is involved in the sexual 

463 misconduct, care will need to be provided by another member of- 

464 the ordained staff (if the church is a multiple staff church) or 
4 65 by a trained interim pastor. If the pastor leaves as a result of 

466 sexual misconduct, in extreme cases a trained interim pastor or 

467 consultant in sexual misconduct may need to work with the 
463 congregation for an extended period of time. 

469 If it is not a pastor who is involved in the sexual 

470 misconduct, then the pastor will provide the needed care for the 

471 congregation. The pastor, if not previously trained in this 

472 specialty area, will need to consult with denominational 

473 specialists who will advise him or her how to proceed and any 

474 anticipated problems. 



129 



I 

475 Information About the Case 

47 6 Members of the congregation will need opportunities both to 

477 receive and give information. If a case of sexual misconduct 

478 becomes a matter of public knowledge within a congregation and if 

479 a pastor has been found guilty of sexual misconduct, the interim 

480 pastor or consultant may hold appropriate meetings with 

481 individuals, small groups, or with the whole congregation. Such 

48 2 meetings should provide information about sexual misconduct in 
43 3 general, Presbyterian polity and our judicial process, and how 

484 others who may have been victimized may be heard and ministered 

485 to. If the offender is not the pastor, then the pastor may 

48 6 perform these functions. At such meetings, one may expect members 

487 to vent their feelings. An opportunity for this to happen should 

488 be provided. If this venting does not take place, then it may 

489 create serious problems for the future of the congregation, for 
4 90 future pastors and for the governing body. 5 Dynamics may differ 

491 somewhat in racial ethnic churches but no empirical studies have 

492 yet demonstrated different dynamics. 

493 Resources Persons 

494 In light of the above needs, the following are several 

495 resource persons whose services would-be valuable to a 

496 congregation in the context of sexual misconduct: a trained I 

497 interim pastor, a committee on ministry representative 

498 knowledgeable -in polity and the effects of sexual misconduct in 

499 the church, a consultant or therapist with knowledge and 

500 experience in dealing with sexual misconduct, an attorney who can 

501 discuss legal aspects of a case, an insurance agent who can 

502 advise the congregation about their exposure to liability or 

503 coverage. 

504 D. The Needs of an Employing Entity in Cases of Sexual 

505 Misconduct 

506 The governing body, employing entity, and response 

507 management team should be aware of the problems a congregation or 

508 employing entity may experience following allegations of sexual 

509 misconduct by a minister, employee, or volunteer. The allegations 

510 may polarize the congregation or organization, damage morale, 

511 create serious internal problems and even limit the trust a 

512 congregation may place in succeeding pastors. Efforts should be 

513 taken to recognize and identify the problems and heal the damage 

514 done to the congregation or organization. 

515 The "Employing Entity" is understood to include the session, 

516 the presbytery, the synod, a General Assembly entity, or a 

517 Presbyterian institution such as a seminary, school, or hospital. 



130 



^pl8 The employing entity will need: 

519 Good Employment Procedures 

520 Any of these employers should already have established, 

521 detailed employment procedures. Such procedures include reference 

522 checking prior to employment, a clearly defined grievance 

523 process, regular reviews of performance, and confidential 

524 channels whereby employees can voice concerns or apprehensions. 

525 It would be advisable to have legal advice as these procedures 

526 are developed, or legal review of those already in place. 

527 All employees should be given an employee handbook which 

528 would include a section on sexual misconduct - its definition and 

529 the appropriate action to take when it occurs. 

530 Clear Reporting Mechanisms and Legal Information 

531 The channels of reporting need to be made clear. If the 

532 accused is the accusor/ victim' s supervisor, then there must be an 

533 alternative route to follow when reporting an alleged incident. 

534 If the employer has a large number of employees, a formal 

535 orientation to the work place would be important. At the time of 

536 the orientation, definitions of sexual misconduct and reporting 
^37 procedures needs to be described, along with the misconduct 

53 8 consequences of which should be out lined in the personnel 

539 policies. 

540 Provisions for Counseling 

541 The personnel practices should include provision for 

542 pastoral or therapeutic counseling for accuser /victims and 

543 others. The budget of the institution need to provide at least 

544 partial coverage of counseling costs. 

545 Provisions for Legal Costs 

546 Employer should develop a reserve fund for legal costs 

547 should there be a need to either prosecute or defend a case in 

548 church or civil courts. 

549 Resource Person 
550 

551 The employer needs to have help from personnel experts, 

552 legal experts, pastoral counselors, and financial consultants. 

553 Presbyteries could locate these resources and make them known to 

554 sessions. 

555 E. The Needs of a Governing Body 

I 



131 



55 6 A governing body (to be distinguished from the employing 

557 entity or the congregation in which sexual misconduct is alleged) i 

558 has special needs and responsibilities as well. These include: ' 

559 Clearly Established Sexual Misconduct Policy and Its procedures 

560 It is the responsibility of the governing body to establish 

561 policy and its procedures governing cases of sexual misconduct in 

562 that jurisdiction. (The PC (USA) policy and its procedures are 

563 intended to guide the development of governing body policy and 

564 procedures.) Allegations of sexual misconduct should be handled 

565 immediately, regardless of whether a written statement has been 

566 submitted in accordance with D-7.0300. The Response Management 

567 Team described in this policy and its procedures is recommended 

568 as the way to respond to allegations; in the absence of an RMT, a 

569 Committee on Ministry or a personnel committee may assume 

570 responsibility for the management of sexual misconduct 

571 allegations. The procedure to be followed should be established 

572 and made known in advance of any complaints. 

573 One of the more difficult questions faced by a Presbytery or 

574 Synod is whether an ordained minister should be placed on 

575 temporary administrative leave pending the resolution of 

576 allegations of sexual misconduct. A policy governing such leaves 

577 of absence should be adopted and followed carefully. 

578 Legal Advice 

579 The governing body may need competent legal counsel, i 

580 particularly if allegations lead to judicial proceedings either " 

581 under the Book of Order or in civil court. The attorney should 

582 be a Presbyterian familiar with Presbyterian polity (since the 

583 Book of Order requires that lead counsel before a Permanent 

584 Judicial Commission be a Presbyterian) , civil procedure, and the 

58 5 legal issues found in sexual tort, sexual harassment, and child 

586 abuse cases. 

587 Risk Management Advice and Liability Insurance 

588 A governing body may face liability awards in cases of 

589 sexual misconduct occurring within its jurisdiction. It is 

590 imperative that liability insurance which covers such ' occurrences 

591 be obtained, and representatives of the governing body should 

592 consult frequently with insurance carriers regarding risk 

59 3 management procedures. 

594 Education 

595 Elected and appointed officials of the governing body are 

596 very likely to be the ones who receive initial reports of sexual 

597 abuse within its jurisdiction. These persons should receive 

59 8 competent in-service training and education about the nature of 



< 



132 



^99 such cases, together with careful preparation regarding the 

WOO requirements of due process under the Book of Order . 

601 An Established Procedure 

602 When a written statement of an alleged offense has been 

603 submitted to the clerk of session or stated clerk of a governing 

604 body in accordance with D-7.0300, preliminary procedures in a 

605 disciplinary case begins automatically. (See Chapter VII, Rules 

606 of Discipline .) 

607 A governing body should provide an established procedure 

608 when a situation occurs where a person either does not know how 

609 to or is not willing to file a written statement of an alleged 

610 offense to the clerk. Governing bodies are urged to use a 

611 Response Management Team as described in this paper. However, 

612 until written sexual misconduct policy and its procedures are 

613 provided (including the establishment of a Resource Management 

614 Team) , the governing body may choose to use the committee on 

615 ministry or personnel committee instead. 

616 IV. Responses to Allegations of Sexual Misconduct 

617 A. Principles 

618 In responding to allegations of sexual misconduct, the 
A619 church should seek healing and assure the protection of all 
^20 persons. Where possible, the privacy of persons should be 

621 respected, and confidentiality of communications guaranteed. By 

622 the provisions of the Book of Order , the PC (USA) assures all 

623 persons of fair procedures in the disciplinary process, and these 

624 procedures should be available throughout the handling of the 

625 allegations, even before the initiation of formal proceedings 

626 under the Book of Order . 

627 Persons affected by allegations of sexual misconduct 

628 (including both the accuser /victim and the accused) often need 

629 counsel of various kind's, including therapeutic, pastoral, and 

63 legal. The Response Management Team (III. B.) should assure that 

631 all such assistance is available as needed, and in some 

632 instances, it may be the responsibility of the governing body or 
63 3 employing entity to provide the costs for such counsel. 

634 Certain kinds of cases may require special handling: 

63 5 a. When abuse of a child is alleged, all states have 

63 6 mandatory reporting requirements which must be complied with. In 

637 addition, an allegation of child abuse puts a special burden on 

63 8 supervisors or employers to assure that the possibility of 

63 9 additional abuse is foreclosed, which may call for mandatory 

640 administrative leave while the allegations are investigated. 

I 



133 



641 b. Similarly, when allegations are made that multiple 

642 victims have suffered sexual abuse, mandatory administrative 

64 3 leave may be necessary, and more extensive counseling resources 

644 (legal and therapeutic) may be required. 

64 5 c. Some cases may involve more than one governing body of 

646 the church (for example, when a minister against whom allegations 

647 are brought has transferred to another presbytery) . In these 

648 instances, it is incumbent upon officers of the various governing 

649 bodies to cooperate fully in the handling of the complaint. 

650 d. Special problems may arise when allegations are brought 

651 regarding old cases of misconduct. (There are no time limits on 

652 the bringing of a charge of sexual abuse in the church. See D- 

653 7.1100.) In such cases, the Response Management Team may want to 

654 recommend alternatives to judicial process such as mediation or 

655 arbitration (IV. D.), call for greater confidentiality while 

656 allegations are investigated, confer with officers of other 

657 governing bodies in which the accused has served, and so forth. 

658 Particularly in older cases, the lingering effects on 

659 congregations may be severe and require close attention. 

660 B. The Response Management Team 

661 The Response Management Team (hereinafter referred to as 

662 RMT) works at the governing body level to assure that an 

663 objective, effective, expeditious, and caring response is made to 

664 allegations of sexual misconduct in the church. The Team shall be 

665 responsible to all persons, entities, and governing bodies who 

666 are affected by the alleged misconduct. Its responsibilities 

667 include notification, needs assessment, identification and 

668 management of resources to meet those needs, provision of 

669 expertise, and provision of written or oral reports where 

670 appropriate. 

671 1. Composition of the RMT: The RMT shall consist of at 

672 least five persons, diverse as to gender and reflective at least 

673 to some extent of the ethnic background of both the 

'674 accuser/victim and the offender. The membership should reflect 

675 professional expertise and/or extensive experience in at least 

676 the following areas: 

677 a. Psychological counseling, with particular 

678 experience in the area of sexual abuse and its aftermath, as well 

679 as pastoral care. 

68 b. Child advocacy. 

681 c. Law, with particular experience in sexual 

68 2 harassment or abuse, civil tort proceedings, criminal proceedings 

683 involving matters of due process, and domestic law. 



134 



684 d. Conflict management and resolution, 

635 particularly in the religious community setting. 

686 e. Insurance and risk management. 

687 f. Personnel management and training. 

638 All members of the Resource Management Team should be 

689 members of the Presbyterian Church (USA) and familiar with its 

690 policies and procedures, particularly in the area of sexual 

691 misconduct. Members of a specific team should not be members of 

692 the congregation in which an allegation arises. Where allegations 

693 involve governing body staff, the next higher governing body 

694 provides the team. 

695 2. Sources of Members for the Resource Management Team: 

696 It is impossible to predict the number of cases which may arise 

697 at any given time in a specific jurisdiction. In presbyteries 

698 where there may be multiple cases it is recommended that 

699 governing bodies elect and maintain a pool of persons who meet 

700 the above qualifications. The governing body shall name the chair 

701 of the Resource Management Team pool from the elected members. 

702 When a Resource Management Team is needed, it is formed from that 

703 pool. Ideally, prior to an allegation, these persons will have 
^04 been specifically trained to respond in crisis situations 

W05 involving alleged sexual misconduct and will be well acquainted 

706 with one another. 

707 The members of each specific R ocoure e Management Team shall 

708 select their own chair. Costs for the Resource Management Team, 

709 and related services, shall be provided by the entity or the 

710 governing body (presbytery, synod, or General Assembly) of the 

711 jurisdiction in which the allegation arises. Members of the pool 

712 should agree to serve for no less than three years, in order to 

713 build experience and expertise within the group. Staggered terms 

714 are advisable. Members of the pool should have regular 

715 opportunities each year to come together for professional 

716 training and sharing of information and experiences related to 

717 sexual misconduct. 

718 3. Convening of an RMT: Whoever receives notification 

719 of an alleged incident should notify the chair of the RMT pool, 

720 who will convene it within five days of notification (by 

721 conference call if necessary) . At its first meeting, the RMT 

722 shall select its chair (if the RMT has been selected from a 

723 larger pool) and hear a report on the nature of the complaint and 

724 the identity of the affected parties including, where 

725 appropriate, the congregation, employment entity, agency, or 

726 governing body in whose jurisdiction the alleged injury took 

727 place. 

I 



135 



72 8 Members of a each RMT should be advised that the time span 
729 for following through on an allegation could be lengthy. The 

73 members should be willing to commit to serve throughout the 

731 anticipated period, (it is understood that unforeseen 

732 circumstances may necessitate the chair's naming substitutes to 
73 3 the RMT membership.) 

734 4. Role and Functions of the RMT: The RMT will serve 

735 the following primary functions: 

73 6 a. Receive the report of sexual misconduct. 

737 b. Notify the affected persons, entities, and agencies: 

738 of the formation of the RMT, 

739 of the RMT * s role in the proceedings, 

740 of the anticipated progress of the handling of 

741 the allegations. 

742 . (It is recommended that standard materials be prepared for 

74 3 distribution which give these explanations in a general manner 

744 without regard to the specifics of a given case.) 

745 Delays should be avoided whenever and wherever possible in 

746 this process. The RMT should have discrete authority to determine 

747 when notifications are given. It should: 

748 a. Confirm that civil authorities have been notified, if 

749 applicable, and that any other provisions are in compliance with 

750 state, civil or criminal law. 

751 b. Assess the needs of the affected persons, congregations, 

752 entities, agencies, and governing bodies. Where necessary, this 

753 needs assessment may be made through inquiries directed to those 

754 specifically affected. However, in the event that such inquiries 

755 are made, the management role of the RMT should be carefully 

756 explained and every effort should be made to assure that the RMT 

757 does not engage in efforts to determine detailed facts of the 

758 alleged misconduct, guilt or innocence of the parties, or itself 

759 provide therapeutic or legal counsel. 

760 c. Determine the availability of resources (including persons, 

761 funding, and support services) to meet the appropriate needs of 

762 the affected persons. IX necessary, these resources should be 

763 sought by the RMT outside the particular governing body if such 

764 resources are not immediately available. Presbyteries or other 

765 governing bodies are advised to compile and frequently update a 

766 list of available psychological counselors, pastoral counselors, 

767 attorneys, conflict managers, and insurance advisors who will be 

768 available for assistance to the affected parties in a given case. 



136 



t 

769 These professional persons should also be well-trained in 

770 the issues of sexual misconduct in the church and regular 

771 training of the panels should be carried out by the governing 

772 bodies as needed. The members of the RMT will also be available 

773 to these professionals for advice and counsel. 

774 d. Assure that all needs of those affected are being adequately 

775 met in an ongoing manner. Concerns or complaints about the 

776 provision of services should be directed to the RMT chair. Also, 

777 the RMT should make sure that the accuser/victim and the accused 

778 are well advised regarding both the steps for instituting formal 

779 PC(USA) judicial process and non judicial options (See IV., D and 

780 E.) 

781 In any event, the RMT shall assure that effective steps to 

782 resolve the accusation have been taken, including the provision 

783 of necessary resources and the initiation of non-judicial 

784 processes (see IV. D.), within thirty (30) days of its receipt of 

785 a written allegation. In the event that this cannot be done, a 

786 report as provided below shall be made to the stated clerk, 

787 unless and only if all affected parties agree in writing to a 

788 postponement of the report. If a postponement is agreed to, a 

789 specific future date for the submission of a report shall be set. 

•790 e. In the event that alternatives to formal judicial process 

^91 fail, the RMT shall be responsible for submitting a written 

792 report to the stated clerk of the governing body in which the 

793 accusation arose. This report shall include all relevant non- 
794 confidential information gathered by the RMT in the course of the 

795 pre- judicial process, together with a recommendation as to the 

796 advisability of formal judicial process. The report does not 

797 constitute a formal complaint nor shall it preclude or in any way 

798 prejudice the initiation of a formal complaint by the accuser/ 

799 victim or a request for vindication by the accused. (See Rules of 

800 Discipline D. 7. 0300.) 

801 Specifically, the written report to the stated clerk should 

802 include: 

803 -the names of all those affected, including congregations, 

804 employment entities, agencies, and governing bodies; 

805 -an account of the written allegations; 

806 -the names of witnesses, professionals or others who, to their 
8 07 knowledge, have been involved in the matter; 

808 -the RMT's recommendations for further action; 

A 8 09 -copies of relevant documents. 



137 



810 4 All affected parties (and their counselors, legal counsel, 

311 or advocates) should receive a copy of the written report 

812 submitted to the stated clerk. 

813 5. Tenure of the RMT: The RMT should, to the extent 

814 permitted under the Rules of Discipline , remain active in the 

815 matter and be available to those involved in order to hear their 

816 concerns throughout the inquiry and disciplinary process. Once a 

817 special disciplinary committee has been appointed, the RMT closes 

818 its investigation of a matter, and refers any new information to 

819 the special disciplinary committee. 

820 6. Media Contact with the RMT: Any inquiries from the 

821 media regarding an incident of sexual misconduct must be directed 

822 to a designated official of the governing body or entity 

823 involved. Questions from the media shall not be addressed by any 

824 member of the RMT. 

825 7. RMT Record Keeping: The RMT shall keep careful 

82 6 records of its proceedings, including detailed accounts of its 

827 actions, minutes of its deliberations and its conversations with 

828 all affected persons, copies of the initial report, 

829 correspondence, and copies of reports to the governing body or 

83 entity. The response team will maintain the records until the 

831 matter has been resolved. At that time, the records shall be 

832 forwarded to the stated clerk or designated personnel official of 

833 the governing body or entity where they will be marked 

834 "confidential" and securely stored. Members of the RMT shall keep 

835 no separate or duplicate records of material that has been 
83 6 turned over to the governing body as a result of its work. 

837 8. Due Process Rights of All Persons: All persons are 

838 entitled to respect and protection. The Response Management Team 

839 is urged to take all necessary steps to assure that these are 

840 provided. In particular, the following Constitutional 

841 Recommendations from the Advisory Committee on the Constitution 

842 should be brought to the attention of the Response Management 

843 Team: 

844 "a. The response management team should not meet with the accused 

845 until final adjudication of the complaint within the church, if 

846 then. 

347 "b. The only contact the response team should have with the 

848 accused prior to final adjudication of the complaint is that it 

8 49 may notify the accused in writing of the accusations and advise 

850 the accused to have no further contact of any sort with the 

851 accuser, the victim, or the victim's family. 

852 "c. If the response management team does contact the accused in 

853 writing of the accusations, it should recommend that the accused

seek legal advice immediately since the accusation could result 
in church discipline or civil or criminal court action." 
( Minutes . 1992, 313) 

C. Reporting Requirements 

Reports of sexual misconduct will occur in a variety of 
ways. Because a governing body or entity cannot control to whom 
the accuser /victim of sexual misconduct will speak first, it is 
important that officers, employees, and persons highly visible to 
church members and visitors understand how reports of incidents 
are channeled to the proper person. 

1. The Duty to Report 

Reports of sexual misconduct should never be taken lightly 
or disregarded and allowed to circulate without concern for the 
integrity and reputation of the accuser /victim, the accused, and 
the Church. Reports should be dealt with as matters of highest 
confidentiality both before and after they have been submitted to 
appropriate authorities as outlined below. 

The first person to learn of an incident of sexual 
misconduct should not undertake an inquiry alone or question 
either the accuser/victim of the accused unless the incident is 
divulged in the process of pastoral care, counseling or a therapy 
session. If the accuser /victim is hesitant to talk to "higher 
authorities," the person who has received the initial report has 
a special pastoral responsibility to build trust and willingness 
to speak with- the accuser, lest the Church be unable to respond 
because no one is able to give firsthand information. 

The person receiving the initial report of sexual misconduct 
from the accuser/victim shall immediately inform a high-level 
supervisor, church officer or administrator of the same entity or 
next highest governing body. The person receiving the initial 
report is considered a mandated reporter and shall report the 
incident to civil or criminal authorities when required by local 
or state law, that is, in the case of child abuse. 

2. In Cases of Child Sexual Abuse 

Within the Church, all persons covered by this policy have a 
duty to report suspected child sexual abuse to the employing 
entity, supervisor, or governing body representative. All persons 
should be informed of and must comply with state and local laws 
regarding incidents of actual or suspected child sexual abuse. 

3 . Reports to the Response Management Team 

It may be that the accused has more power in the 
organization than the accuser /victim. In that case, the person 



139 



897 who receives the initial report of sexual misconduct must find 

898 the appropriate person within the governing body or entity to 

899 whom a subsequent report can be made. Those who regularly { 

900 function in governing bodies or entities should understand the 

901 organizational reporting structure. If the accused is in a high- 

902 level position, the subsequent report should be given to a person 

903 of higher level in the same body or the next higher governing 

904 body. 

905 The supervisor, church officer, or administrator who 

906 receives a report is required to file immediately a written 

907 report with the Response Management Team of the governing body or 

908 entity. 

909 4. Reports from Response Management Team to 

910 Appropriate Committee (if Governing Body or Entity) 

911 Prepare a written report of the case for submission to the 

912 governing body or director of the entity, giving no less than the 

913 following: 

914 a names of parties involved; 

915 b. governing body membership of the parties involved; 

916 c. allegations made by the accuser; 

917 d. response made by the accused (if any) ; ^ 

918 e. findings and conclusions; and 

919 f . suggested further actions to be taXen by the governing body 

920 or entity. 

921 

922 D. Alternatives to Judicial Process. 

923 

924 Non- judicial dispute resolution processes are widely and 

925 successfully used in private conflicts as well as in civil and 

92 6 criminal cases. (See, for example, Section 18.03, Personnel 

927 Policies of the General Assembly, PCUSA.) Religious bodies have 

928 served as valuable allies in the development of these 

929 alternatives, providing both incentive and resources for dispute 

93 resolution programs. 

931 When allegations of sexual misconduct in the church are 

93 2 made, it may sometimes be appropriate to resolve the matter 

93 3 without recourse to judicial process under the Book of Order . If 

934 such alternatives are pursued, however, it is essential that the 

93 5 matter be handled with full regard for the interests and rights 

936 of all affected parties. 



140 



937 Alternatives to judicial process may include: 

^3 8 1. Arbitration. In the arbitration process, all 

939 parties to a conflict agree to submit the dispute to an 

940 independent person or panel to determine the best resolution. In 

941 a sexual misconduct case, the arbitrator should be someone with 

942 extensive experience in non-judicial arbitration who is also 

943 familiar with Presbyterian polity. All affected parties should 

944 have the opportunity to present their case to the arbitrator, and 

945 the arbitrator's decision may be final (binding) or subject to 

94 6 appeal to a higher authority (non-binding) such as a disciplinary 

947 committee. 

948 2. Negotiation. In the negotiation process, advocates 

949 for the parties to a conflict are responsible for working out a 

950 solution which effectively resolves all issues and which protects 

951 the interests of all parties. In some cases, an individual may 

952 successfully represent his or her own interests rather than 

953 having an advocate, but this is rarely advisable. Again, for a 

954 negotiated settlement to be successful, all parties affected by 

955 the dispute should be represented in the negotiation and all 

956 issues should be resolved. 

957 3. Mediation. In the mediation process, the parties 

958 to a conflict are enabled through the assistance of a mediator to 

959 work out their own agreement for resolving the dispute. 

^960 Mediation differs from both arbitration and negotiation in that 

^961 the power to make the final decisions is retained by the parties 

962 themselves. The successful outcome of a mediation is. a function 

963 (among other .things) of the willingness and ability of the 

964 parties to reach agreement and the creativity of the mediator in 

965 helping to shape that agreement in the interests of all 

966 concerned. A critical role of the mediator is the establishment 

967 and maintenance of a power balance between the parties during the 

968 mediation process. 

969 4. Dismissal of Charges or Allegations. While not 

970 technically a dispute resolution process, dismissing or dropping 

971 the charges may sometimes be a. way to resolve a allegation. 

972 This may happen because charges are determined to be false or 

973 insignificant, or because the costs (financial or otherwise) of 

974 pursuing the charges are too high. For a dismissal to be 

975 effective, all parties must agree to it and all significant" 

976 disputes should be set aside. Dismissal without this will very 

977 likely lead to continuing conflict and further damage to the 

978 parties and the church. 

979 These processes (except for final dismissal) are not 

980 mutually exclusive, and the failure of one process may lead to 

981 another. (For example, if mediation fails, the persons may 

982 decide to try negotiation by their advocates; if that fails, 

983 private arbitration could follow.) All the methods have 



141 



984 strengths and weaknesses, depending on the nature of the conflict 

98 5 and the persons involved. In every method, the assistance of 

98 6 skilled professionals and adherence to professional standards are I 

987 critical. The protection of confidentiality, common agreement 

983 regarding the admissibility or inadmissibility of evidence 

989 obtained in the process, and guarantees of the due process rights 

990 of all persons are essential. 

991 In the context of sexual misconduct in the church, the use 

992 of an alternative process may be in the best interest of the 

993 parties and the church. The success of the process, however, 

994 will be dependent upon many significant factors, including the 

995 degree and kind of injury suffered; the willingness of all 

996 parties to work to heal or remedy that injury; the resources 

997 available to assist the processes of healing and remediation; the 
9 98 expertise of the arbitrators, mediators, or other persons 

999 involved in facilitating the process; and the quality of the 

1000 resolutions agreed upon. Informal or secret agreements which do 

1001 not address all issues or meet the concerns of all parties are 

1002 not in the best interest of the church. 

1003 E. Judicial Process ( Book of Order ) 

1004 Governing body or entity response will vary according to the 

1005 status of the accused. Church members and ministers are subject 

1006 to inquiry and discipline under the Book of Order (D-5.0100). The 

1007 pastoral relationship of ministers serving congregations is 

1008 subject to oversight by the presbytery (G-14.0602, G-14.0603, G- 

1009 11.0502; G-11.0502j). Administrative commissions must follow the^ 

1010 fair procedures described in G-9.0505. Safeguards, as in cases 

1011 of judicial process for synod and presbytery staff are found in 

1012 G-9.0705. 

1013 Ministers employed by a synod or General Assembly entity 

1014 hold ministerial standing in presbyteries. Response to 

1015 allegations of sexual misconduct by such ministers will be made 

1016 by the entity under the personnel policies. Such ministers will 

1017 also be subject to the Rules of Discipline as a member of 

1018 presbytery. 

1019 1. Accused Covered by Book of Order 

102 Upon receipt of the report filed by the Response Management 

1021 Team, the clerk of the governing body should report to the 

1022 governing body that an offense has been alleged. If the response 

1023 management team reports that there is sufficient evidence of 

1024 sexual misconduct on the part of the accused, a special 

1025 disciplinary committee should immediately be appointed. (See Book 

1026 of Order D-7.0800.) 



142 



■ 27 In order to call a special disciplinary committee, the clerk 

^028 need not be personally persuaded of the truth of the allegation 

1029 nor need the clerk see all the supporting evidence available to 

1030 the response management team or the special disciplinary 

1031 committee. The clerk must be provided enough information to cause 

1032 a reasonable person to conclude that an inquiry is needed to 

1033 either censure the accused or clear the accused of the 

1034 allegations. 

1035 The special disciplinary committee must promptly begin its 

1036 inquiry into the allegations. Delay may cause further harm to the 

1037 accuser/victim and/or the accused. Information provided by the 

1038 Response Management Team's report will help to speed the process. 

1039 However, the special disciplinary committee must itself conduct a 

1040 thorough inquiry. (See Book of Order D-7.0800.) 

1041 Governing bodies and entities must cooperate with civil 

1042 authorities in an investigation of child sexual abuse or other 

1043 criminal sexual misconduct. Church disciplinary proceedings 

1044 cannot interfere with a criminal investigation by civil 

1045 authorities and may have to be suspended until these are 

1046 completed. 

1047 The session has original jurisdiction in disciplinary cases 

1048 involving members of the church, each having jurisdiction only 
^49 over its own members (D-5. 0100). A church member who is accused 
^)50 of sexual misconduct away from the congregation to which the 

1051 member belongs may be prosecuted by secular authorities but may 

1052 only be removed from membership by the Session of the 

1053 congregation to which the member belongs. 

1054 When a church member is accused of sexual misconduct, the 

1055 disciplinary process is the same as that described for ministers 

1056 and found in chapter seven of the Rules of Discipline . A special 

1057 disciplinary committee must make an inquiry, decide whether to 

1058 make charges and prosecute. The session will sit as a court and 

1059 try the case (D-8.0000). The person accused has a right to 

1060 counsel, to present witnesses, and to cross-examine witnesses. If 

1061 at any point in the proceedings the accused presents a letter of 

1062 resignation from the church, the jurisdiction of the session 

1063 ends. The session records that the case was closed and the 

1064 special disciplinary committee dissolved (D-5. 0300 and D-7.0700). 

1065 2. Accused Not Covered by Book of Order 

1066 Upon receipt of the report filed by the Response Management 

1067 Team, the director of the entity should immediately submit the 
1063 report to the personnel committee of the organization. A session 

1069 or presbytery which ordinarily functions without a personnel 

1070 committee may appoint an administrative commission for the 

1071 function described in this section. The personnel committee will 

t 



1^3 



1072 refer to an be guided by the written personnel policies of the 

1073 governing body or entity which shall include the following: 

1074 a. Determine whether or not the Response Management Team's 

1075 report gives rise to a reasonable suspicion of sexual misconduct 
107 6 by the accused. 

1077 b. If so, determine and gather additional information 

1078 necessary to make a determination. 

1079 c. Determine any remedies, including disciplinary action, 

1080 necessary and advisable under the circumstances. 

1081 d. Inform the accuser/ victim and the accused of the 

1082 remedy. 

1083 e. In all cases, the personnel committee shall prepare a 

1084 written report which shall be included in the accused's permanent 

1085 personnel file. The accused shall be allowed to attach any 

1086 written statements to said documents, also for permanent 

1087 inclusion in the permanent file. 

1088 Either the accuser/victim or the accused shall have the 

1089 right to appeal the personnel committee's decision through 

1090 standard guidelines and procedures of the entity. 

1091 3. Governing Body or Entity Record Keeping 

1092 The governing body or entity should keep detailed records of 

1093 its actions and minutes of its deliberations and its 

1094 conversations with the accuser, the accused, and other parties 

1095 involved; copies of reports received from the Response Management 

1096 Team, correspondence and copies of the reports received from 

1097 committees or commissions. Such records will be kept 

1098 confidential. The clerk of the governing body or director of the 

1099 entity will maintain the records while the inquiry is in process. 

1100 After the case has been resolved, the special disciplinary 

1101 committee or personnel committee will prepare a brief summary 

1102 report. A copy will be included in the accused's permanent 

1103 personnel file, and a copy of the report will be given to the 

1104 accuser and the accused. 

1105 F. Financial Implications 

110 6 The financial implications of sexual misconduct are many. At 

1107 present it appears that the costs of processing sexual misconduct 

1108 cases is manageable within the ecclesiastical system. Some 

1109 governing bodies may feel overwhelmed at one point or another to 

1110 deal with a specific case load. The more inclusive governing 

1111 bodies should provide a pool of resources, financial and 

1112 otherwise, to help- minimize the immediate impact of such cases 

1113 and to enable the less inclusive governing bodies to respond more 

i 



144 



%.14 effectively. The financial implications for the future can be 

j.115 reduced by proactive care and training in the present. Civil and 

1116 criminal cases are imposing an additional burden to a few 

1117 governing bodies. While insurance carriers have been helpful in 

1118 the past, it appears that they will be less helpful and more 

1119 restrictive in the future. 

1120 V. Educating and Training 

1121 Since the issue of sexual misconduct has become an evermore 

1122 present reality, there is an emerging need to educate and train a 

1123 wide variety of persons. Persons needing this specific education 

1124 include: ministers, volunteers, officers, non-professionals and 

1125 professional staff, ministerial candidates, professionals who 

1126 will be working with this issue within the denomination, members 

1127 of the congregation, and governing body staff including 

1128 supervisors, employees, and stated clerks, and particularly 

1129 Response Management Team members (RMT) . 

1130 Education for these persons and groups will be different on 

1131 a group by group basis. A primary requirement for all persons is 

1132 common knowledge of the General Assembly Policy and Its 

1133 Procedures on Sexual Misconduct and their own specific governing 

1134 body or entity policy. 

^.35 Theological institutions should include material in their 

m36 existing curriculum, on sexual ethics including the appropriate 

1137 use of ministerial power, the General Assembly Policy and Its 

1138 Procedures on Sexual Misconduct, and other resources. It is 

1139 further urged that the appropriate presbytery committee (s) 

1140 include training for inquirers, candidates, newly ordained 

1141 pastors, and new pastors to their presbyteries regarding sexual 

1142 misconduct, especially including education on their specific 

1143 policy and procedures. 

1144 Much of a congregation's education currently happens in 

1145 response to an actual case of sexual misconduct. However, it is 

1146 recommended that the congregation be as pro-active in this area 

1147 as possible offering education in a variety of settings. There 

1148 are already numerous resource materials available that could be 

1149 adapted to a congregation's setting. 

1150 Employing entities need to make sure all employees are well 

1151 acquainted with, understand, and abide by their policy and 

1152 procedures. Employing entities should offer additional training 

1153 and resources, such as: a workshop during staff meeting; lunch 

1154 time discussion group; articles and books make available; etc. 

1155 Response Management Teams need to have a depth of knowledge 

1156 on the issue that will enable them to respond to cases with which 

1157 they are confronted. Monies will need to be made available for 
^.5 3 their training which might include attendance at a workshop (s), 



145 



1159 an honorarium for a visiting expert, or written and video 

1160 materials. This training will be ongoing as new members are added] 

1161 to the Team and as new information emerges. We expect that each 

1162 member of the RMT will keep current in one's own area of 

1163 expertise with regard to the issue of sexual misconduct. 

1164 Any professional (therapists, attorneys, advocates, 

1165 mediators, arbitrators) used by a governing body should have 

1166 access to experts qualified in the field of sexual misconduct if 

1167 they themselves are not.

^196 APPENDICES 



1197 APPENDIX A 

1198 DEFINITIONS 

1199 Accused is the term used to represent the person against 

1200 whom a claim of sexual misconduct is made. 

1201 Accuser /Victim is a term used to represent the person 

1202 claiming knowledge of sexual misconduct by a person covered by 

1203 this policy or a person claiming to have been abused by a person 

1204 covered under this policy. The accuser /victim may or may not 

1205 have been the victim of the alleged sexual misconduct (See also 

1206 Child Sexual Abuse). A person such as a family member , friend, 

1207 or colleague may be the accuser. 

1208 Child Sexual Abuse includes, but is not limited to, any 

1209 contact or interaction between a child and an adult when the 

1210 child is being used for the sexual stimulation of the adult 

1211 person or of a third person. The behavior may or may not involve 

1212 touching. Sexual behavior between a child and an adult is always 
^213 considered forced whether or not consented to by the child. No 
^214 upper age limit for child sexual abuse has been given in this 

1215 policy because the age of adulthood varies from state to state. 

1216 The upper age limit is intended to be that recognized in the 

1217 state in which the act was committed. 

1218 Church when spelled with the initial capitalized refers to 

1219 the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.). Church when spelled with the 

1220 initial in lowercase refers to local churches. The word 

1221 congregation is used loosely for members and participants. 

1222 Employee is the comprehensive term used to cover individuals 

1223 who are hired or called to work for the Church for salary or 

1224 wages. 

1225 Entity is the term used to refer to any program or office 

1226 managed by a board, committee, council, or other body whose 

1227 membership is elected by a governing body. See Manual of the 

1228 General Assembly, Standing Rule 47. 

1229 Governing Body is a representative body composed of elders 
123 and ministers of the Word and Sacrament: sessions, presbyteries, 

1231 synods, and the General Assembly. A governing body may establish 

1232 entities such as day care centers, conference centers, camps, or 
123 3 homes for the aged. A governing body may have both church members 
1234 and non-members as employees.

147 



1235 High Risk Occupation is that which call for a person to work 

123 6 in close contact with those who are vulnerable and less capable 

123 7 of protecting themselves, with children, elderly persons, those 

1238 who are wholly or partially incapacitated, or counseling clients 

1239 having emotional or personal problems. 

1240 Inquiry is the term used in the Rules of Discipline to 

1241 determine whether charges should be filed based upon allegations 

1242 of an offense received by a governing body. See Book of Order D- 

1243 7.0200. 

1244 Mandated Reporter is described by some states' laws as a 

1245 person who is required to report any and all suspected incidents 

1246 of child abuse, including child sexual abuse that come to their 

1247 attention. State laws vary from defining "all persons having 

1248 knowledge" as mandated reporters to specifying very limited lists 

1249 of professions whose members are required to report. 

1250 Persons Covered by this policy include church members, 

1251 church officers, ministers, and non-members who are employees or 

1252 volunteers under the supervision of governing bodies or entities, 

1253 including those who are accused of sexual misconduct under 

1254 circumstances in which (1) access to the accuser/ victim is 

1255 related to some form of service to or appointment by governing 

1256 bodies or entities of the church, or (2) sexual misconduct in a 

1257 non-church related setting raises questions for the Church of 

1258 character and effectiveness. For example, this policy covers a 

1259 non-member adult who sexually abuses a non member teenage while {* 

1260 "helping out" on a church-sponsored camping trip. 

12 61 Reasonable Suspicion is a subjective criterion that refers 

1262 to a belief or opinion based on facts or circumstances of sexual 

12 63 misconduct that are sufficient enough for a prudent person to 

12 64 want to inquire further, to take protective action, or report to 

1265 authorities. State child abuse reporting laws may include wording 

12 66 that indicates what degree of suspicion or knowledge gives rise 

12 67 to the duty to report. 

1268 Response is the action taken by the governing body or entity 

12 69 when a report of sexual misconduct is received. It may include 

1270 (1) inquiry into facts and circumstances, (2) possible 

1271 disciplinary action (administrative or judicial or both) , (3) 

1272 pastoral care for accuser/victims and their families and others, 

1273 and (4) pastoral care and rehabilitation for the accused and care 

1274 for their families. 

1275 Response Management Team is a body constituted by a 

1276 governing body or entity to facilitate the process of responding 

1277 to allegations of sexual misconduct by a person covered under 

1278 this policy. The structure and function of the Response 

1279 Management Team are detailed in Section IV-B of this report.

f280 Secular Authorities are the governmental bodies, whether 

281 city, county, state, or federal, who are given the responsibility 

1282 to investigate, criminally prosecute, and/or bring civil charges 

1283 against individuals accused of sexual crimes or offenses against 

1284 adults and children. 

1285 Secular Law is the body of municipal, state, and federal 
128 6 laws and is often referred to collectively as civil and criminal 

1287 law. Prohibited behavior addressed by this policy may result in 

1288 criminal and/ or civil charges filed under secular law. 

1289 Sexual Harassment as defined for this policy is as follows: 

1290 Unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and 

1291 other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature constitute 

1292 sexual harassment when: 

1293 1. Submission to such conduct is made either explicitly or 

1294 implicitly a term or a condition of an individual's employment or 

1295 their continued status in an institution. 

1296 2. Submission to or rejection of such conduct by an 

1297 individual is used as the basis for employment decisions 

1298 affecting such individual, or 

A299 3. Such conduct has the purpose or effect of unreasonably 

^300 interfering with an individual's work performance by creating an 

1301 intimidating, hostile, or offensive working environment. 

1302 Sexual Misconduct is the comprehensive term used in this 

1303 policy and its procedures to include: 

1304 1. Child sexual abuse as defined above. 

1305 2. Sexual harassment as defined above. 

1306 3. Rape or sexual contact by force, threat, or 

1307 intimidation. 

1308 4. Sexual conduct (such as offensive, obscene or 

1309 suggestive language or behavior, unacceptable visual contact, 

1310 unwelcome touching or fondling) which is injurious to the 

1311 physical or emotional health of another. 

1312 5. Sexual Malfeasance defined as sexual conduct within a 

1313 ministerial (e.g., clergy with a member of the congregation) or 

1314 professional relationship (e.g., counselor with a client, lay 

1315 employee with a church member, presbytery executive with a 

1316 committee member who may be a lay person, a minister, or an 

1317 elder) . Sexual conduct includes unwelcome sexual advances, 

1318 requests for sexual favors, and verbal or physical conduct of a 
A3 19 sexual nature. This definition is not meant to cover 



149 



1320 relationships between spouses, nor is it meant to restrict church 

13 21 professionals from having normal, mutual, social, intimate, or | 

1322 marital relationships. ™ 

13 23 6. Sexual Abuse as found in D-7.1100 

1324 Victim: (See Accuser /Victim) 

13 25 Volunteer is the term used for those who provide services 

1326 for governing bodies and entities of the Church and receive no 

1327 benefits or remuneration. Volunteers include persons elected or 

1328 appointed to serve on boards, committees, and other groups. For 
13 29 purposes of this policy volunteers are treated the same as 

1330 employees. Liabilities of the governing body or entity may be the 

13 31 same for volunteers as for employees.

13 32 APPENDIX B 

1333 

1334 EMPLOYMENT PROCEDURES -WITH FORMS 



1335 Each "Employing Entity" should have already established and 

1336 implemented entity personnel policies which include employment 
13 37 procedures for the search, selection and call of entity staff. 
1338 The employment procedures should spell out the process to be 

13 3 9 followed during the election of chief administrative officers and 

1340 other staff, the appointment of exempt and non-exempt staff and 

13 41 the call of Ministers of The Word and Sacrament, chief 

1342 administrative officers and elected staff. These employment 

1343 procedures should also include candidate/ applicant reference 

1344 checks prior to employment. Employing entity personnel policies 

1345 should contain a clearly defined grievance process, a periodic 
13 4 6 performance review process, and a section which prohibits sexual 
13 47 misconduct (including sexual harassment) . These provisions should 
13 48 be applicable to all full-time, part-time, temporary and interim 

1349 staff. The personnel policies should also provide for 

1350 confidential communication channels whereby staff members can 

1351 voice concerns or apprehensions without fear of retribution. 

1352 Churchwide and public advertisement of vacant positions as a 

fB53 part of an employing entity's search procedures to fill vacant 

354 positions is required of General Assembly entities and related 

1355 bodies and is recommended as a guideline for governing bodies by 

1356 the Churchwide Personnel Policies as well as the Churchwide Plan 

1357 for Equal Employment and Affirmative Action. In support of this 

1358 policy and its procedures on sexual misconduct, all vacant 

1359 positions of religious leadership forwarded to publications for 
13 60 advertisement, distributed to units of the church as well as 

13 61 posted on local bulletin boards will include the following 

13 62 statement: 

1363 "The Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) is an equal opportunity 

1364 employer. In addition the church has a strong policy 

13 65 opposing sexual harassment or abuse. References and records 

1366 will be checked during the employment process." 

13 67 This statement will also be included in all information 

13 68 distributed through the Personnel Referral Service of the Church 

13 69 Vocations Ministry Unit. 

1370 The following forms are included in this appendix: Exhibit 

1371 A, Employee Questionnaire and Exhibit B, confidential Employee 

1372 References will be used by General Assembly entities and 

1373 institutions and are recommended for use by all other employing 

1374 units of the church. Exhibit C, a form for Implementing Policy of 
^375 Sexual Misconduct, is to be used by each employing, entity as it 



151 



13 7 6 distributes its sexual misconduct policy to employees and other. 

1377 Exhibit D, Report of Suspected Sexual Misconduct, is for 

1378 gathering basic information to be passed along to the appropriate 

1379 person or group handling sexual misconduct cases for a unit or 
13 80 other entity. 

1381 As required by acceptable personnel procedures an Employee 

13 82 Handbook should be written, published, and distributed to each 

1383 employee of church employing entities. All existing Personnel 

1384 Policies and Employee Handbooks should be updated to include a 

1385 sexual misconduct policy. 

1386 It is advisable to seek legal advice as other governing 

1387 bodies, related bodies and entities develop and publish policy 
13 88 and procedures on sexual misconduct using this General Assembly 
1389 policy as a guide. 

13 90 All forms should be checked for compliance with state laws.

1599 APPENDIX C 1 

1600 RISK MANAGEMENT 

1601 A. Implementation 

1602 The General Assembly urges all governing bodies and related 

1603 entities including colleges, universities, and theological 

1604 institutions to establish policies, procedures, and practices 

1605 related to sexual misconduct. Governing bodies and entities are 

1606 to take appropriate steps to inform member, employees, 

1607 volunteers, and students of the standards of conduct and the 

1608 procedures for effective response when receiving a report of 

1609 sexual misconduct. Governing bodies are reminded of their duty to 

1610 cooperate with secular authorities in the investigation and 

1611 prosecution of violations of law. 

1612 In part the structures and procedures for responding to 

1613 allegations of sexual misconduct are mandated by the Book of 

1614 Order . such as the roles of the committee on ministry and the 

1615 special disciplinary committee (see G-11.0502 and D-7,0800). When 

1616 child sexual abuse or other misconduct that violates criminal 

1617 laws is alleged, the secular authorities will immediately take 

1618 control of the investigation and disposition of charges against 

1619 the accused. Governing bodies and entities must cooperate with 

1620 secular authorities in any secular investigation of sexual A 

1621 misconduct. The governing body or entity has a duty to make its ™ 

1622 inquiry and enforce disciplinary procedures if warranted when it 

1623 can be done without interfering with the secular authority or in 

1624 cases when civil authorities have dropped action in the case. 

1625 Response to complaints of sexual misconduct in the course of 

1626 employment will be governed by the governing body's or entity's 

1627 existing personnel policy. The same allegations may also result 

1628 in charges filed against a church member or minister under the 

1629 Rules of Discipline , and may lead to temporary or permanent 
163 removal from membership or office. 

1631 Implementation of the churchwide policy will require 

163 2 governing bodies and their entities to adopt educational programs 

163 3 to prevent sexual misconduct and to provide training in pastoral 

1634 and disciplinary procedures. 

1635 B. Liability and Insurance 

163 6 A governing body or entity can be held liable for harm 

1637 caused by sexual misconduct of a minister or employee based on a 

1638 number of legal theories such as negligent hiring and 
163 9 supervision. Governing bodies and entities must take such _ 
1640 potential liability into consideration when establishing hiring 

I 



160 




and supervisory practices. 



164 2 Governing bodies and entities should regularly inform their 

1643 liability insurance carriers of the activities and programs they 

1644 operate or sponsor and of the duties and responsibilities of 

1645 officers, employees, and volunteers. The standard insurance 
164 6 policy must be enhanced by endorsements to cover specific 

1647 exposures such as camps, day-care operations, shelters, or other 

1648 outreach programs. 

1649 It is also recommended that governing bodies and entities 

1650 obtain an endorsement to their general liability insurance policy 

1651 specifically covering sexual abuse and molestation. Such 

1652 coverage may provide for legal defense expenses and judgements in 

1653 civil suits brought against the organization, its officers, 

1654 directors, or employees. 

1655 C. Employment Practices 

1656 . 1. Record Keeping 

1657 Accurate record keeping is an essential part of hiring and 

1658 supervision practices. Every governing body and entity should 

1659 maintain a personnel file on every employee including ministers. 

1660 The file should contain the application for employment, any 
^61 employment questionnaires, references responses and other 
$62 documents related to this policy. 

1663 2. Prescreening Applicants 

1664 Governing bodies and entities are urged to establish 

1665 stringent hiring practices. If an applicant is unknown to the 

1666 employer, the employer should confirm the applicant's identity by 

1667 requiring photographic identification such as a driver's license. 

1668 Part of pre-employment screening should include specific 

1669 questions related to discovering previous complaints of sexual 

1670 misconduct. Governing bodies and entities should ask persons 

1671 seeking ministerial calls or employment in non-ordained positions 

1672 questions such as: 

1673 a. Has a civil, criminal, or ecclesiastical complaint ever been 

1674 sustained against you involving sexual misconduct by you? 

1675 b. Have you ever resigned or been terminated from a position 

1676 for reasons relating to allegations of sexual misconduct by you? 

1677 c. If so, indicate the date, nature and place of these 

1678 allegations, and the name, address, and telephone number of your 

1679 employer at that time. 

030 d. Have you been required to receive professional treatment, 



161 



1631 physical or psychological, for reasons related to sexual 

168 2 misconduct to you? 

1683 e. If so, please give a short description of the treatment 

1684 including the date, nature of treatment, place and name, address 

1685 and telephone number of the treating physician or other 

1686 professional. 

1687 A sample employment questionnaire is attached as Exhibit A 

1688 for adaptation by governing bodies and entities. The questions 

1689 included in this sample may be integrated into a standard 

1690 employment questionnaire along with other necessary questions. 

1691 3. References 

1692 The- employing governing body or entity is responsible for 

1693 contacting references for prospective ministers, employees, or 

1694 volunteers. A written record of conversations or correspondence 

1695 with references should be kept in the minister ' s/ employee ■ s 

1696 personnel file. (See Exhibit B for a sample reference form.) 

1697 In dealing with ministers when transferring from one 

1698 position to another in the matter of sexual misconduct clearance, 

1699 the governing body could assume responsibility for previous 

1700 employer reference checks through the synod executive, executive 

1701 presbyter, or to the authorized persons who would report to the 

1702 committee on ministry or committee on preparation for ministry 

1703 either that there had been no reported sexual misconduct or that 

1704 the committee should inquire into reported sexual misconduct. | 

1705 The person within the governing body or entity authorized to 

1706 give a reference is obligated to give truthful information 

1707 regarding allegations, inquiries, and administrative or 

1708 disciplinary action related to sexual misconduct of the 

1709 applicant. The response, however, must be limited to information 

1710 contained within the written summary prepared as part of the 

1711 Response Management Team or governing body report. The response, 

1712 however, must be limited to information .that is a matter of 

1713 public record (e.g. presbytery minutes) or in the applicant's own 

1714 personnel file which is maintained by the governing body or other 

1715 entity. 

1716 If false or misleading information is given or relevant 

1717 information is withheld, the applicant should be eliminated from 

1718 consideration. 

1719 Applicants should be informed of negative comments regarding 

1720 sexual misconduct and shall be given an opportunity to submit 

1721 additional references or to give other evidence to correct or 

1722 respond to harmful information obtained from a reference. 

1723 D. Distribution 



162 



^724 Copies of this policy and its procedures shall be 

T725 distributed to all governing body and entity offices and shall be 

1726 distributed to all employees and volunteers , and be available to 

1727 all church members. It is intended .for use by church members, 

1728 church officers, employees, and volunteers. This policy and its 

1729 procedures shall be made available to persons who accuse others 
173 of misconduct, including those who are or claim to be victims of 

1731 sexual misconduct and their families. This policy and its 

1732 procedures will be available to those serving on special 

1733 disciplinary committees, committees on ministry, committees on 

1734 preparation for ministry, and Response Management Team. 

1735 Upon receipt of this policy and its procedures, personnel in 

173 6 high-risk occupations must sign a written acknowledgement of 

1737 receipt (Exhibit C) . This acknowledgement shall be kept in the 

1738 person's personnel file. 

1739 E. Volunteers 

174 While these guidelines are intended for volunteers, no 

1741 requirement for screening and applications is usually applied. 

1742 The increase of litigation requires that local churches do a 

1743 better job of screening and supervising unpaid volunteers. If 

1744 the volunteer is new or unknown to your church, some information 

1745 checking may be wise before allowing him/her to work in high- 

1746 risk positions such as youth advisor, children's workers, lay 
■747 counselor, boy or girl scout, or camp counselors.

April 27, 1993 



Renewal Agreements for Partnerships in Ghana and Zaire 

Renewal agreements for five years (1993-1997) with partnerships in Ghana and 
Zaire have been completed. 

The Memorandum of Understanding between Salem Presbytery and Kwahu Presbytery, 
Presbyterian Church of Ghana focuses on the Tease Agriculture Project with 
emphasis on food and nutrition and the development of programs to enable women 
to have a greater role in the Ghanian society. To a lesser extent there will be 
emphasis on health and medical care, evangelism, and education. All this is to 
witness to the love of Christ and to improve the quality of life for people in 
the Afram plains area of Ghana. 

The Memorandum of Understanding between Salem Presbytery and Presbytery of 
Mbujimayi, Zaire focuses on the Christian Health Center and PRODEK (Rural 
Agricultural Project). The Christian Health Center (CCS), in Mbujimayi, Zaire, 
a city of 500,000 people, seeks to witness to the Lord Jesus Christ through 
ministries which are concerned with the root causes of hunger - nutrition, 
health, and agriculture. PRODEK, the rural agricultural extension program, seeks 
to improve nutrition and the economy through up-dated practices working with 
committees in over 30 rural villages. 

Both partnerships are in conjunction with the Presbytery of New Hope and involves 
visits from the overseas partners to our presbyteries and from our presbyteries 
to Tease and Mbujimayi. Commitments, budgets, and decisions will be mutually 
agreed to by all partners, and financial arrangements will be negotiated on a 
yearly basis. 

Changes in Hunger Guidelines 

The Hunger Committee is recommending changes in the percentages to make provision 
for Emergency Funds as follows (this change reflects suggestions made by various 
members of Presbytery and the Committee's experience). A copy of the recommended 
guidelines is attached, and the changes are as follows: 

Percentages : 

International Partnerships 50% 

Domestic Grants 40% 

♦Emergency Needs 5% 

Education and Promotion 5% 
♦(Should this amount accrue to more than $5,000, the overage at the end of the 
fiscal year will be credited to the Domestic and International Partnership line 
items as needed) . 

There are procedural additions (2-C, 4-C, 10) which reflect this change and 
editorial revisions for clarity and to avoid duplications. 

For your information ; 

Plans are being made to send the Camerons to Ghana for three months as Volunteers 
in Mission. They plan to leave the middle of August. 

Clarence Jolly will be attending the CCS Board Meeting in Zaire if the political 
situation permits. 

Dr. Ohemeng-Boakye, Chairman of Kwahu Presbytery, Ghana, will be visiting Salem 
Presbytery in July and will attend the July Presbytery meeting at Banner Elk.

addressed, funds may be granted to existing programs in 
emergencies or in special situations or to continuing 
programs . 

B . Internat ional 

Priority will be given to partnerships developing long- 
term commitments with particular programs and churches 
abroad. These International Partnerships will address 
development through an integrated approach designed to 
ultimately enable people to meet their essential needs on 
their own. 

C. Emergency Needs 

Emergency needs addressed will include immediate hunger 
needs due to an extraordinary nonrecurring event of 
significant magnitude for the people involved. 

3. FORMULA FOR DISTRIBUTION: 
International Partnerships 50%

APPENDIX I 

ABBREVIATED TEXT 
THE CHURCH AND HOMOSEXUALITY 

"DEFINITIVE GUIDANCE" 

The United Presbyterian Church in the United States of America 



Introduction 

The General Assembly was asked by the Presbyteries 
of New York City and of the Palisades to give 
"definitive guidance" concerning the eligibility for 

; ordination to the professional ministry of persons who 
openly acknowledge homosexual orientation and 

, practice... 

We conclude that homosexuality is not God's wish for 
; humanity. This we affirm, despite the fact that some 
of its forms may be deeply rooted in an individual's 
| personality structure. Some persons are exclusively 
homosexual in orientation. In many cases 

homosexuality is more a sign of the brokenness of 
God's world than of willful rebellion. In other cases 
homosexual behavior is freely chosen or learned in 
environments where normal development is thwarted. 
Even where the homosexual orientation has not been 
consciously sought or chosen, it is neither a gift 
from God nor a state nor a condition like race; it is 
a result of our living in a fallen world. . . 

Jesus Christ calls us out of the alienation and 
isolation of our fallen state into the freedom of new 
life. This new life redeems us as sexual beings but 
1 is impossible without repentance. To claim that God's 
• love for us removes divine judgment of us is to 
eliminate the essence of divine love and to exchange 
\ grace for romantic sentimentality. There is a 
necessary judgment in God's love — else it cannot 
redeem. It was this Christ who said to the woman in 
^ltery, "Go and sin no more" (John 8:1-12), and to 
A rich young ruler: "One thing you still lack. 
™1 all that you have and distribute to the 
poor... and come, follow me." (Luke 18:22 and 
parallels . ) 

Jesus Christ calls us out of the alienation, 
1 brokenness, and isolation of our fallen state into the 
j freedom of new life in Christ. We deny that this new 
j life liberates us to license and affirm that it frees 
and empowers us for lives of obedience whereby all of 
; life becomes subject to his Lordship. 

Scripture and Homosexuality 

.... We anchor our understanding of homosexuality in 
the revelation in Scripture of God's intention for 
human sexuality. 

In order to comprehend the biblical view of 
I homosexuality, we cannot simply limit ourselves to 
I. those texts that directly address this issue. We must 
first understand something of what the Scriptures 
teach about human sexuality in general. As we examine 
the whole framework of teaching bearing upon our 
sexuality from Genesis onward, we find that 
homosexuality is a contradiction of God's wise and 
beautiful pattern for human sexual relationships 
revealed in Scripture and affirmed in God's ongoing 
will for our life in the Spirit of Christ. It is a 
confusion of sexual roles that mirrors the tragic 
inversion in which men and women worship the creature 
instead of the Creator. God created us male and 
female to display in clear diversity and balance the 
range of qualities in God's own nature. The opening 
chapters of Genesis show that sexual union as "one 
flesh" is established within the context of 
companionship and the formation of the family. Nature 
confirms revelation in the functional compatibility of 
male and female genitalia and the natural process of 
procreation and family continuity. 

«uman sin has deeply affected the processes by which 
ual orientation is formed, with the result that 
e of us, heterosexual or homosexual, fulfill 
perfectly God's plan for our sexuality. This makes it 
all the more imperative for revelation to make clear 
for us how our sexual relationships are to be 
conducted so as to please God and challenge us to 



seek God's will instead of following our own. Though 
none of us will ever achieve perfect fulfillment of 
God's will, all Christians are responsible to view 
their sins as God views them and to strive against 
them. To evade this responsibility is to permit the 
church to model for the world forms of sexual behavior 
that may seriously injure individuals, families, and 
the whole fabric of human society. Homosexual persons 
who will strive toward God's revealed will in this 
area of their lives, and make use of all the resources 
of grace, can receive God's power to transform their 
desires or arrest their active expression. 

Within the context of general biblical teaching on 
human sexuality, a number of passages dealing 
specifically with homosexuality are significant for 
our response to this issue. These are, of course, 
complementary to the wider biblical themes of 
creation, fall, and redemption. 

Three Scriptures specifically address the issue of 
homosexual behavior between consenting males: 
Leviticus 18:22, Leviticus 20:13, and Romans 1:26-27. 
Romans 1:26-27 also addresses the issue of homosexual 
behavior between consenting females. These three 
passages stand in an integral and complementary 
relationship. Leviticus 20:13 regards homosexual 
behavior as an " abomination . " 

In the Reformed tradition, the Leviticus passages 
are considered part of the moral law and thus are 
different in kind from Levitical proscriptions against 
certain foods, for instance, which belong to the 
ritual law. Jesus declared "all foods clean" (Mark 
7:19) — one declaration among many that the ritual law 
of the Old Testament is transcended and fulfilled in 
him, Moral law in the New Testament is not the means 
of salvation, for that is Christ alone. Rather, 
obedience to the moral law is a fruit of grace and 
salvation . . . 

Romans 1:26-27 speaks to the problem of homosexual 
passion, describing it as "dishonorable," as well as 
to homosexual behavior, which is described as 
"unnatural." By "unnatural" the Scripture does not 
mean contrary to custom, nor contrary to the 
preference of a particular person, but rather contrary 
to that order of universal human sexual nature that 
God intended in Genesis 1 and 2. 

We emphasize that Paul here includes homosexual 
behavior in a larger catalog of sins, which includes 
pride, greed, jealously, disobedience to parents, and 
deceit. Homosexual behavior is no greater and no less 
a sin that these. 

Two other texts, I Corinthians 6:9-10 and I Timothy 
1:9-10, show further New Testament opposition to 
homosexual behavior. I Corinthians probably 

distinguishes between the more passive partners or 
catamites (malakof) and the more active partners 
(arsenokoitai) . Homosexual relationships in the 
Hellenistic world were widespread. We may safely 
assume that some were characterized by tenderness, 
commitment, and altruism. Yet the New Testament 
declares that all homosexual practice is incompatible 
with Christian faith and life. No Scriptures speak of 
homosexuality as granted by God. No Scriptures permit 
or condone any of the forms of homosexuality. In 
Matthew 19:1-12, Jesus reaffirms God's intention for 
sexual intercourse, enduring marriage between husband 
and wife, and affirms godly celibacy for those not 
entering the marriage covenant. 

The biblical revelation to Israel, reaffirmed in the 
teaching of Jesus and Paul, portrayed in the theology 
and human creation, specifically reflected in the 
ethical teaching in both the Old and New Testaments, 
and confirmed in nature, clearly indicates that 
genital sexual expression is meant to occur within the 
covenant of heterosexual marriage. Behavior that is 
pleasing to God cannot simply be defined as that which 
pleases others or expresses our own strong needs and 



169 



identity; it must flow out of faithful and loving 
obedience to God.... 

To conclude that the Spirit contradicts in our 
experience what the Spirit clearly said in Scripture 
is to set Spirit against Spirit and to cut ourselves 
loose from any objective test to confirm that we are 
following God and not the spirits in our culture or 
our own fallible reason. The church that destroys the 
balance between Word and Spirit, so carefully 
constructed by the Reformers to insure that we follow 
none other than Jesus Christ who is the Word, will 
soon lose its Christian substance and become 
indistinguishable from the world. We have been 
charged to seek 'new light from God's Word," not "new 
light" contrary to God's Word. 

Church Membership 

Persons who manifest homosexual behavior must be 
treated with the profound respect and pastoral 
tenderness due all people of God. There can be no 
place within the Christian faith for the response to 
homosexual persons of mingled contempt, hatred, and 
fear that is called homophobia. . . 

As person repent and believe, they become members of 
Christ's body. The church is not a citadel of the 
morally perfect; it is a hospital for sinners. It is 
the fellowship where contrite, needy people rest their 
hope for salvation on Christ and his righteousness... 

There is room in the church for all who give honest 
affirmation to the vows required for membership in the 
church. Homosexual persons who sincerely affirm 
"Jesus Christ is my Lord and Savior" and "I intend to 
be his disciple, to obey his word, and to show his 
love" should not be excluded from membership. 

Ordination 

To be an ordained officer is to be a human 
instrument, touched by divine powers but still an 
earthen vessel. As portrayed in Scripture, the 
officers set before the church and community an 
example of piety, love, service, and moral integrity. 
Officers are not free from repeated expressions of 
sin. Neither are members and officers free to adopt 
a lifestyle of conscious, continuing, and unresisted 
sin in any area of their lives. For the church to 
ordain a self-af firming, practicing homosexual person 
to ministry would be to act in contradiction to its 
charter and calling in Scripture, setting in motion 
both within the church and society serious 
contradictions to the will of Christ. 

The repentant homosexual person who finds the power 
of Christ redirecting his or her sexual desires toward 
a married heterosexual commitment, or finds God's 
power to control his or her desires and to adopt a 
celibate lifestyle, can certainly be ordained, all 
other qualifications being met. Indeed, such 
candidates must be welcomed and be free to share their 
full identity. Their experience of hatred and 
rejection may have given them a unique capacity for 
love and sensitivity as wounded healers among 
heterosexual Christians, and they may be incomparably 
equipped to extend the church's outreach to the 
homosexual community. 

We believe that Jesus Christ intends the ordination 
of officers to be a sign of hope to the church and the 
world. Therefore our present understanding of God's 
will precludes the ordination of persons who do not 
repent of homosexual practice... 



Conclusions 

I. Response to Overture 9 (1976) m 

The Presbytery of New York City and the Presbyter, 
of the Palisades have asked the General Assembly to 
give "definitive guidance" in regard to the ordination 
of persons who may be otherwise well qualified but who 
affirm their own homosexual identity and practice. 

The phase "homosexual persons" does not occur in the 
Book of Order of the United Presbyterian Church. No 
phrase within the Book of Order explicitly prohibits 
the ordination of self-affirming, practicing 
homosexual persons to office within the church. 
However, no phrase within the Book of Order can be 
construed as an explicit mandate to disregard sexual 
practice when evaluating candidates for ordination. 
In short, the Book of Order does not give explicit 
direction to presbyteries, elders, and congregations 
as to whether or not self-affirming, practicing 
homosexual persons are eligible or ineligible for 
ordination to office. 

Therefore, the 190th General Assembly (1978) of The 
United Presbyterian Church in the United States of 
America offers the presbyteries the following 
definitive guidance: 

That unrepentant homosexual practice does not accord 
with the requirements for ordination set forth in Form 
of Government, Chapter VII, Section 3 (37 .03) : . . . "It 
is indispensable that, besides possessing the 
necessary gifts and abilities, natural and acquired, 
everyone undertaking a particular ministry should have 
a sense of inner persuasion, be sound in the faith, 
live according to godliness, have the approval of 
God's people and the concurring judgment of a lawful 
judicatory of the Church." 

In relation to candidates for the ordained ministry, 
committees should be informed by the above guidance. 



Action (abbreviated) taken by the 1978 UPCUSA GenerA 
Assembly; similar action was passed by the 1979 PdH 
General Assembly; it has been sustained by Assemblies 
ever since. (See G-13.0103(q) (r) .

4. Special Meeting of Presbytery - November 13 

In accordance with the requirements of 6-11.0201, at the request of the 
Social Justice Committee, the Council requested the Moderator to call a 
special meeting of Salem Presbytery to be held November 13, 1993, as 
follows: 

That Salem Presbytery meet in special session at 9:00 a.m. on 
Saturday, November 13, 1993, to study the issue, "Christian 
Human Sexuality in Neo— Pagan North America ... A Hake— Up Call 1 

The goals of the Cathering: 

1. To affirm our identity in Christ and Our Sexual Identity in 
Christ as we seek to live faithfully, as "Resident Aliens" in 
Neo-Pagan North America. 

2. To provide a model for Educational Leadership in local 
congregations for the study of the issue. 

3 . To begin to learn how to establish a safe place for the 
conversation where we, as Christians, can risk talking about our 
sexuality. 

A day long meeting is proposed with the following format: 
Morning Prayer 

Issues Presentation (Either a guest or member of Presbytery to 

present the theological issues and concerns 
that confront us in the named topic.) 

Most of the Day would then be spent in small groups with trained 
group conveners * The Resource for our Day will be Continuing the 
Conversations. A guide for Congregation Study of Issues Related to 
Human Sexuality . ((c) 1992 The Theology and Worship Ministry Unit 
Presbyterian Church (USA) ) 

5. Council approved the following dates for 1994 meetings of Presbytery: 



6. Council approved the transfer of $28,879 from the Ceneral Assembly for 
1993 to the Synod Partnership Funds and referred to the Budget and

8. Council granted permission for Presbytery Staff to take a one-day 
retreat on August 2, 1993. This permission also grants leave to close 
the office for that day. 

9. Council accepted, with grateful appreciation, a gift of $25,000 from an 
anonymous donor to be used for renovating the buildings at Northwest 
Guilford New Church Development Project at Oak Ridge, NC. 

The timing of this gift is most fortunate since budgeted money was 
insufficient to complete the project. This is the third such gift — one 
from the Richardson Foundation, Greensboro, NC of $5,000, and one from 
another anonymous donor of $500. 



COUNCIL CONCURS WITH THE FOLLOWING COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATIONS in presenting them 
to Presbytery: 



1. International Missions 

2. Budget and Finance 

3. Sexual Misconduct Policy Task Force 

4. Committee on Ministry AAEEO Policy

First (Boone) 

First (Pilot Mountain) 

First (Statesville) 

Flat Rock

Even though no intentional goal for these churches will be adopted, the Council 
joins the Bicentennial Fund Steering Committee in concern that information 
concerning the projects and goal of the Salem Bicentennial Fund Drive be made 
available to each congregation along with an opportunity for individuals to 
participate if they so choose. Individual gifts can be specified to a particular 
project(s) in common, the Synod or Presbytery Prospectus OR such gifts may be 
unspecified to any one such prospectus or combination of them. Promotional 
materials are available in Presbytery's Office. Therefore, Council makes the 
following recommendation: 



ACTION: 



1. Presbytery requested the session of each church not participating in 
the Bicentennial Fund to consider the approval of a free will 
offering opportunity for any members desiring to participate in the 



178 



Bicentennial Fund, and that upon approval of the offering by the 
Session, to circulate information concerning the Bicentennial Fund 
and the free will offering among the membership. 



ACTION: 

2. The Proposed Docket for the Nineteenth Stated Meeting of Salem 
Presbytery was adopted. 



ACTION: 

3. Salem Presbytery approved the following Policy Regarding Advocacy 
Statements (including letters) in the Name of Salem Presbytery: 

The proposed statement must: 

First, clearly indicate the ways in which Salem Presbytery has been 
directly involved and invested in the problem described; and 

Second, describe the problem being addressed and the way in which it 
works against our efforts indicated above; and 

Third, why this is an urgent time to seek solutions to the problem 
described above; and 

Fourth, appeal to the person or entity addressed to take the above 
described matters into account in using the power or resources 
available to make a positive contribution toward solutions to 
the problem. 

Such statements addressed to those outside the jurisdiction of Salem 
Presbytery must be approved by the Council or, if Council so 
specifies, must be recommended to Presbytery for its adoption before 
mailing. 



RE: Oak Ridge Contract 

Our new church development project is moving ahead rapidly. Now that Rob Evans 
is on the field, there is a flurry of activity. Worship services have begun I 
using the Chapel at Oak Ridge Academy, the forming congregation is already 
averaging attendance in the 40' s with a high of 571 

With school about to resume at the Academy, there is considerable need to move 
quickly to renovate and convert the existing metal building on our Oak Ridge 
property to accommodate the growing number of worshippers. 

The Steering Committee of the project has negotiated a contract with SAW 
Construction Company of kernersville. Work included in this contract will 
convert the present interior arrangements to include worship/meeting space for 
about 175, a kitchen, classroom, bathrooms and mechanical room. the contract 
price is not to exceed $58,500. 



ACTION: 

4. Presbytery authorized the Moderator of the Trustees, Neel Fleming, 
to sign the contract with SAW Construction Company of Kernersville 



179 



for the renovation/conversion of the existing Varco Pruden Metal 
Building at the Salem Presbytery new church development property at 
2614 Oak Ridge Road in Oak Ridge, NC. The total cost is $58,500. 



The Council had requests for Salem Presbytery's endorsement of two significant 
projects being carried on by ecumenical groups in which a number of our churches 
and ministers participate. 

One comes from the Alamance Allied Church Council of Alamance County. The other 
is an effort toward racial harmony in Winston-Salem called "The Crossing 52 
Initiative" . 



ACTION: 

5. Salem Presbytery granted the Council authority to examine these 
projects and offer Presbytery's endorsement, if the way be clear. 



HUNGER COMMITTEE 
Charles Cameron, Moderator 

Presbytery heard a report on work in Ghana from the Rev. Ohemeng Boakye. In a 
special service, Presbytery commissioned Charles and Marion Cameron as Volunteers 
in Mission to Ghana. 



BUDGET AND FINANCE COMMITTEE 

1994 Budget ; Salem Presbytery has continued to experience a slight decline in 
receipts from the member churches while expenses are increasing substantially. 
The Budget and Finance Committee has reflected this decrease in the expected 
revenues received through benevolent giving. This has necessitated a reduction 
in expenses as well. Further pressure is put on the budget by the cost of new 
church development, which is an area where Salem Presbytery has committed 
significant resources. The result has been that in order to present a balanced 
budget for 1994, we have suggested significant reductions in the budgets of the 
Outdoor Ministries Division and Congregational Life Division. We are also 
seeking another change in the distribution of Benevolences between Presbytery, 
Synod and General Assembly. The net result is that the recommended budget for 
1994 is $1,865,175, a reduction of 2.5% from 1993. 

1994 Askings Budget ; For 1994 we are asking the member churches to raise their 
giving to at least 10 percent of the individual church's budget. For those 
churches who are already giving 10 percent of their budget or higher, we are 
asking that they consider increasing their giving by 3 percent. Benevolent 
giving at this level would reverse the decline we have experienced in the past 
few years. 



ACTIONS : 

6. The proposed 1994 Salem Presbytery Budget in the amount of 
$1,865,175 was approved. (See Appendix D, pp. 208-211.) 

7. The Askings Budget was approved at 10 percent of the particular 
church's budget or an increase of 3 percent over the 1993 amount, 
whichever is greater. 



180 



8. A reallocation of percentages for Benevolence distribution was 
approved as follows: 

General Assembly -26% (from 28%) 
Synod - 15.4% (from 16.5%) 

Presbytery - 57.6% (from 55.5%) 



PATHWAYS 

Rebecca McKee, along with others from the Pathways Committee made a presentation 
to Presbytery regarding the upcoming Pathways event on October 2, 1993, at the 
Parkway Church in Winston-Salem. 



EDUCATIONAL MINISTRY COMMITTEE 
Fred Ward, Moderator 

John Hamil presented the report of the Educational Ministry Committee. 

The Educational Ministry Committee held five meetings during the year to plan and 
to effect the promotion of Christian Education opportunities throughout the 
Presbytery. The principal areas of education and support focused upon teacher 
training, lay leader involvement, new officer training, and fellowship of 
educators . 

Plans are being developed to hold a follow-up seminar with Dr. Edward White of 
the Alban Institute to the one he conducted in Salem Presbytery on January 25, 
1992, entitled, "Empowering the Laity for Ministry in Daily Life." The seminar 
will be conducted in two phases with the initial training event to be held 
September 18, 1993, which will train interviewers to determine the power of lay 
ministry currently existing in selected churches. The second meeting, which will 
be held in January, 1994, will utilize the results of the interviews to prepare 
a program in which Dr. White will explore specific ways in which all churches can 
become "equipping" or "empowering" churches — intentional in seeing that each 
church member discovers their gifts and their call and then finds both the 
support and the challenge to respond in ministry in daily life. 

Christian Educators met throughout the year for idea sharing, fellowship and 
program support. The planned Educator's Retreat in October, 1992, with Rodger 
Nishioka to discuss new trends in Christian Education had to be canceled because 
of a request for Rodger to meet with President Bush and his advisors to discuss 
the problems of our nation's youth. An Educator's Gathering will be held October 
4-6 at Duke Power's Lodge at Lake Norman. 

Effort has been expended to co-sponsor a program with the Presbyterian School of 
Christian Education to offer a continuing Professional Education Program in the 
area. Presbytery obligations are being studied prior to commitment and further 
program f inalization. 

The Educational Ministry Committee conducted two officer training workshops for 
newly elected elders and deacons during the last quarter of 1992. Approximately 
127 officers attended these sessions which is double the attendance of the 
previous year. Additional training sessions are scheduled for 1993 in the 
Winston-Salem and Greensboro areas. Other sessions may be conducted if 
requested. These sessions have proven beneficial to all in attendance because 
of the synergism involved between the churches represented. 

A Christian Education Advocate Network for Salem Presbytery is being supported 
by the committee and by two educators who are assigned to act as Salem's 
Advocates . 

The Committee assisted Elkin Presbyterian Church in review of applications and 
selection of an applicant to be the recipient of the Dr. William Welborn 
Scholarship. 



181 



The Educational Ministry Committee in conjunction with the Committee on Ministry 
will co-sponsor a sexual abuse seminar for church professionals. 

The Committee has accepted as a 1994 task the responsibility to develop a 
strategy to promote and uplift the Synod's Career Counseling program among DCEs, 
ministers, and interested adult advisors. 



LUNCH 

The Presbytery recessed for lunch at 12:00 Noon and was led in prayer by John 
Handley . 

FRIDAY AFTERNOON SESSION 

Presbytery reconvened at 1:30 p.m. The Presbytery was divided into three groups 
to hear sermons preached by the three candidates for ordination in partial 
fulfillment of the requirements for ordination. Holly Diane Hayes preached on 
Matthew 13:31-35 a sermon entitled, "Beyond Imagining". Lisa Faye Traynham 
Nelson preached on Matthew 13:1-9; 18-23, a sermon entitled, "The Price Is 
Right". Stephen Howell Wilkins preached on John 13:12-17; 34, 35 and Hebrews 
10:19-25, a sermon entitled, "Let's Get Together". Presbytery approved this part 
of their examination. 



SEXUAL MISCONDUCT/HARASSMENT POLICY 

Ann Jahnes and Margaret Elliott representing the Task Force presented the "Sexual 
Misconduct Policy and Its Procedures To Be Presented To The Nineteenth Stated 
Meeting Of Salem Presbytery" . 



ACTION: 

9. Salem Presbytery adopted the Policy with amendments, thereby 
replacing the Interim Policy, and empowered the Committee on 
Ministry to implement this policy including recruiting and training

PEACEMAKING COMMITTEE 
Gray Clark, Moderator 

Peacemaking Offering 

You will find a report in your packet that lists the contributions of each church 
to the Peacemaking Offering. We are promoting this offering because we find that 
issues of Peacemaking need to be heard by our world and our church. The offering 
is generally taken on World Communion Sunday, the first Sunday in October. Your 
offering is broken down in the following ways: 25% to Local Peacemaking, 25% to 
Presbytery and Synod Peacemaking and 50% to General Assembly Peacemaking. 

What is this money used for? It is used to develop resource materials that deal 
with issues ranging from violence to children, to conflict in churches, to issues 
of international peace. Locally we encourage people to go to the Peacemaking 
Conference in Montreat, provide resources, sponsored study trips to the United 
Nations and have encouraged peacemaking within the congregations of presbytery. 

Peacemaking Commitment 

The "Commitment Letter" is a way that each Session and Congregation can state its 
commitment to the cause of peacemaking. Copies of the "Commitment" are available 
from the Presbytery Office. 

We urge your Session to approve its support for Peacemaking. 
Youth Trip to the United Nations 

We are planning a trip to the United Nations in New York to study the issues 
related to the environment in the world. The trip is scheduled for July 28-31. 

Adult Trip to the United Nations 

Another trip to the United Nations in New York is scheduled for November 11-13 
to study issues related to the conflict in Eastern Europe. 

International Trips 

We are currently planning for trips abroad that would get members of presbytery 
involved in other cultures and help understand differences that create potential 
conflict. 



183 



Peacemaking at Presbytery 

During the July meeting of Presbytery, we will be leading an exercise that will 
teach commissioners how to discuss difficult issues in the church with respect 
and dignity for each other. 

We Urge Your Prayers ! 

We urge your prayers for churches and communities within our presbytery that are 
currently involved in conflict. We pray that the racial issues that divide 
certain communities within our presbytery will be healed with an honest effort 
on all sides to understand the issues, and reconcile the differences that have 
emerged due to discrimination and prejudice. We pray that churches will lead by 
their examples of condemning hate groups and promoting equality and 
understanding . 

Speakers and Resources Available 

If your Session or Congregation would like to hear more about the issues of 
Peacemaking, the "Commitment Letter", the Peacemaking Offering, etc., please do 
not hesitate to call either Katy Reed at Presbytery's office or Gray Clark, 
Moderator of the Peacemaking Committee.

b. His credo which follows was approved: 



I continue discovering the gift of faith is more dynamic 
than static. The faith of childhood which sustains and provides 
a foundation incorporates an ever expanding network of 
knowledge, wisdom and understanding of the triune God. Thus in 
confidence I declare: 

The LORD God is indeed the Creator who draws order out of 
chaos, light from darkness, and breathes the breath of life into 
our nostrils. Our Sovereign Creator is the Bestower of grace, 
Covenant Maker, Liberator from bondage, Sustainer through 
wilderness pilgrimages, and Sender of prophets and proclaimers 
bearing good news. 

Jesus Christ, the Son of God, God the Son, is the 
embodiment of good news. He comes to turn the heart of the 
prodigal to the One he calls, "Abba, Father," and transform 
lives for abundant living. Our Savior lays aside his will and 
offers his life as a sacrament and way for sinners seeking their 
true home. He experiences death and is resurrected from the 
realm of the dead as he promises. He lives, reigns and will 
come again in the fullness of time to gather the beloved for the 
heavenly banquet. He is Host of the banquet and Lord of the 
Church. 

The Holy Spirit is the abiding presence of God-With-Us. God 
the Spirit imparts life to the Church and empowers the Body of 
Christ for ministry. The Spirit guides, teaches, comforts and 
seals the beloved for Christ's sake. 

The Church is the Body of Christ, the redemptive community 
of the forgiven, baptized to serve and nurtured through bread 
and cup. The Church is a living organism sent into the world to 
bear witness, show mercy and advocate justice, and make 
disciples for the Lord. The Church lives as Easter People in 
anticipation and hope of the resurrection to eternal life. 

We are also people of the Word - Living and Written. 
Scripture illuminated by the Holy Spirit is our written 
authority for living. The Written Word points to Jesus Christ 
and God's redemptive purposes. Scripture assures us that God is 
the ultimate victor over sin and death. 

The Creeds and Confessions of the Reformed and Reforming 
Church are reliable witnesses of our on-going efforts to 
understand and communicate to others at specific times the faith 
that is in us. These declarations of faith reveal how our 
spiritual ancestors attempted to be faithful to the Triune God 
who calls the beloved to faithfully follow the way of Jesus 
Christ in the power of the Holy Spirit in any and all 
circumstances. In faith which continues to be transformed and 
re-formed I affirm with them, I believe.

16. Presbytery approved the committee and floor examination of David M. 
Cameron in accordance with Book of Order G-11.0402. 

a. The Reverend David M. Cameron was received from Holston 
Presbytery to accept the call to serve as therapist at the 
Presbyterian Counseling Center of Greensboro. The effective 
date is August 2, 1993. 

b. His credo which follows was approved. 



My faith begins not with a theological system of thought 
but with the way I have experienced God in my life. As the 
product of a stable, Christian home I grew up in an environment 
that was fertile ground for the biblical stories which 
emphasized God's love, God's abiding faithfulness, and 
God's desire that all people should know who they are and 
whose they are. 

I believe that as women and men we were created to be in 
God's image; that is, to be in relationship with God and with 
other human beings as God is in relationship with us and within 
God's self. It is in Jesus Christ that we see what it means to 
be truly human. In him we see a perfect love for God and for 
fellow human beings. In Christ, we see God's humanity and deity 
in that we see one who suffered the ultimate indignity of death, 
yet who conquered death and reigns in the power and promise of 
new life. 

As human beings we have failed to be what we were created 
to be. By isolating ourselves from God and from each other we 
become less than human; less than what God intended; and, 
therefore, we sin. Left to our own devices there is no part of 
our lives which is not distorted by self interest, pride, or 
mistrust. Without a knowledge of Jesus Christ, we can at best 
construct only a false god which stands over against us and 
limits us instead of a God who stands with us and makes us free. 

The Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments bear 
witness to God's activity in the lives of God's people. They 
are testimonies to a living God who enters into covenant with 
sinners, not because of our worthiness or a compulsion on God's 
part, but because of God's free grace. In Scripture we learn of 



RECEPTION OF DAVID M. CAMERON 



ACTION: 



188 



a God who is revealed in the person of Jesus Christ in order 
that through his life, death, and resurrection the world might 
be reconciled. In this we find our hope and in this we find our 
task. The Bible is the primary authority for my life and the 
standard by which I test all other authorities. My trust in its 
veracity is based not on empirical proof but on the inward 
witness of the Holy Spirit in my life, in the Church, and in the 
lives of those who have gone before me in the faith. 

The Church is a continuation of God's covenant people who 
are called by him not for privilege, but for service. God sent 
Jesus Christ into the world that the world might be saved 
through him, and it is to this end that the Church by the Spirit 
of Christ is to work. It is the task of the Church to bear 
witness to the fact that God is a God who is for us, a God whose 
kingdom of justice and peace, though hidden, is already begun on 
Earth, and a God who has promised to be with us even in the face 
of an uncertain future. 

We each live out our faith in partial knowledge and are but 
earthen vessels for the treasure of the gospel. As we 
experience God's forgiveness, strength and humor, I believe it 
is vital that we endeavor to pass on these gifts to others 
without stopping to ask if they deserve it. Only as we seek to 
be related to those around us can we know the joy of being 
related to the Creator God, our Rock and our Redeemer. 

c. Presbytery approved the establishment of a relationship between 
Mr. Cameron and the Presbyterian Counseling Center of 
Greensboro, North Carolina effective August 2, 1993; approved

RECEPTION OF ROBERT M. GANT, JR. 



ACTION: 

17. Presbytery approved the committee and floor examination of Robert M. 
Gant, Jr. in accordance with Book of Order G-11.0402. 

a. The Reverend Robert M. Gant, Jr. was received from New Harmony 
Presbytery to accept the call to serve as Associate Pastor of 
the Alamance Presbyterian Church in Greensboro. The effective 
date is August 1, 1993. 

b. His credo which follows was approved 

At five years of age, I remember telling God that I wanted 
to do right and be good. In my child like mind this meant 
obeying my parents and staying out of trouble. I began to see 
my relationship with God based on my good works. If I was good 
then God would love me. If I was bad God would not love me. 

At age 18, I came to realize the good news that God's love 
is not dependent upon my goodness, but upon Jesus Christ and 
what He has done for me. So like the apostle Paul I saw my 
righteousness as filthy rags in God's sight and claimed the 
righteousness God offers in Jesus Christ. 

So I call Jesus, "Savior." He alone forgives my sins and 
delivers me from the power of sin. 

I call Jesus, "Lord." He is Lord of creation. He is 
eternal. To call Him Lord means that He has preeminence in all 
areas of my life. 

I discern the preeminence of Christ by reading Scripture, 
prayer and listening to the Spirit through the fellowship of 
believers in the church. 

I believe the creeds and confessions of the Presbyterian 
Church USA contain the system of doctrine consistent with 
Biblical exposition. I find "A Brief Statement of Faith" to be 
a concise and sound exposition of my faith. 

I believe God is revealed in the Scriptures of the Old and 
New Testaments. The Bible provides us with what we need to know 
concerning salvation and living the Christian life. 

I believe the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ to be 
the heart of the gospel. This was the message the evangelists 
proclaimed in the Book of Acts. Paul speaks to this gospel in 
1 Corinthians 15. "If Christ be not risen our faith is in 
vain. " 

I believe the church is the body of Christ and through this 
body the gospel is proclaimed by word and deed. The invisible 
church is composed of Christians who have died. The visible 
church is composed of those who profess faith in Christ with 
their children. 

The church is composed of believers of all nations, races 
and cultures. The Presbyterian Church USA is only one part of 
the church universal. 

The sacraments are a gift given by God to the church to 
demonstrate visible signs of the gospel. In baptism the living 
God demonstrates the cleansing and regenerating love of God 
through the Holy Spirit in the life of the church. 

God has given the Lord's Supper to the church to 
demonstrate the death of Christ for our salvation and our 
communion with a resurrected Lord. 

I believe that Christ will one day return. There shall be 
a new heaven and new earth. Sin and death will be no more. 
Jesus Christ will reign forever and ever. 



190 



c. 



I support the government of the PCDSA. I believe decisions 
rendered by a body of believers seeking the Spirit's guidance is 
superior to the decrees of an individual. Thus I affirm my 
ordination vows and the responsibility of church officers. 

Presbytery approved the establishment of an Associate Pastor 
relationship between Mr. Gant and the Alamance Presbyterian 
Church of Greensboro effective August 1, 1993; approved the

and have been examined by the Examinations Committee of Presbytery. 



RECEPTION OF HOLLY DIANE HAYES 



ACTION: 

18. Presbytery approved the committee and floor examination and sermon 
of Holly Diane Hayes. 

a. Holly Diane Hayes was received and will be ordained by Salem 
Presbytery so that she may accept the call to serve as Associate 
Pastor of the Forest Hills Presbyterian Church in High Point. 
The effective date is July 15, 1993. She is a candidate under 
the care of the Presbytery of San Diego. 



191 



b. Her credo which follows was approved. 



My faith is in the Triune God: God the Father, God the 
Son, God the Holy Spirit. I believe that God is creator of all 
things seen and unseen, and that God is faithful to and active 
within creation. 

I believe that humanity was created in God's image, good 
and faithful, with free will and wisdom, to be in loving 
relationship with God. Yet in our freedom we chose to live 
according to our desires rather than the will of God, and our 
relationship with God was broken. I believe that sin, the 
manifestation of that brokenness, permeates all of human life, 
and corrupts all relationships: those with ourselves, with 
others, with the created order, and with God. In the face of 
human faithlessness, however, God's faithfulness has prevailed. 
I believe that in Jesus Christ, God's faithfulness to and love 
for all of creation was made flesh. 

As Son of God, Jesus bore witness to God through his 
preaching, teaching, healing, and life of faith. In turn, he 
experienced, yet did not fall prey to, all the temptation with 
which humanity is beset. By dying on the cross for the sins of 
all people, Jesus demonstrated his perfect trust in God's will, 
and his boundless love for God's people. I have faith that 
through Christ's death and resurrection, sin's deathgrip has 
been released, and reconciliation with God is possible. 

I believe too, that in Christ's death and resurrection, 
God's, faithfulness has fully shone forth. By the power of the 
Holy Spirit, Christ enters our broken lives, convinces us of our 
dependence upon God, and empowers us to respond in faith. 

When Christ came to earth, the Kingdom of God was 
inaugurated. The risen Christ now rules through the church 
until the day of final judgment. I have faith that in the 
Sacraments of Baptism and the Lord's Supper, Christ is present, 
transforming, bringing new life, cleansing us of sin, and 
binding the people of God into one body, which is the Church. 
I believe that the Church is called to bear witness to God's 
saving work in Jesus Christ through the proclamation of the 
Gospel. In nurturing the fellowship, effecting peace and 
reconciliation in the present kingdom, and inspiring hope in the 
kingdom to come, the Church points to a time when under Christ's 
rule, peace will finally reign. 

In Holy Scripture we find the story of God's fulfillment of 
God's promises to Abraham, faithfulness to the covenant with 
Israel, and God's self -revelation in Jesus Christ. Here we 
learn of the vast'ness of God's love for humanity. By the power 
of the Holy Spirit, God's Word comes to us through Scripture, 
convincing us of our need for God's grace, and inspiring us to 
live lives of faith. Enlightened by this Word, we are given 
eyes to see God's faithful presence, and to look to the time 
when all will sup together at the table of the Lord. It is 
because of this grace that I am able to say with conviction born 
of faith that I trust in God the Father, Jesus Christ his Son, 
and the power and presence of the Holy Spirit.

ACTION: 



19. Presbytery approved the committee and floor examination and sermon 
of Lisa Faye Traynham Nelson. 



a. Lisa Faye Traynham Nelson was received and will be ordained by 
Salem Presbytery so that she may accept the call to serve as the 
Associate Pastor of the Prospect Presbyterian Church in 
Mooresville on a 3/4 time basis. The effective date is June 14, 
1993. She is a candidate under the care of Trinity Presbytery. 



b. Her credo which follows was approved: 



I believe in the One Living God, who has chosen to reveal 
God's self to us as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. I believe 
that God is the ultimate source and sustainer of the world. 

I believe God chose to enter this world in a unique way in 
the man Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ, as the Son of God and our 
Savior, through His death and resurrection makes it possible for 
sinful humanity to have life everlasting. I believe Jesus 
Christ is Lord and is head of the Church. 

I believe in the Holy Spirit whose presence in and among us 
guides us in our interpretation of Scripture and in our everyday 
lives. I believe the Holy Spirit is active in our world today 
bringing about reconciliation and newness. 

I believe that the Scriptures are a witness without 
parallel to the activity of God in the world. I believe the 
Bible to be inspired by God. 

I believe in the sacraments of the church, baptism and the 
Lord's Supper. In baptism, we receive the knowledge and 
certainty of our cleansing and salvation. In the Lord's Supper, 
we commemorate the death, sacrifice, and resurrection of Christ. 
As God's children, we need spiritual nourishment throughout our 
lives. This nourishment is given through the Lord's Supper. 

I believe the church, as the body of believers, are called 
to illustrate God's love and grace, to support one another in 
good times as well as bad, to encourage spiritual growth in 
personal life as well as corporate worship, and to be God's 
instruments in the world.

RECEPTION OF STEPHEN HOWELL WILKINS 



ACTION: 



20. Presbytery approved the committee and floor examination and sermon 
of Stephen Howell Wilkins. 



a. Stephen Howell Wilkins was received and will be ordained by 
Salem Presbytery so that he may accept the call to serve as 
Pastor of the Third Creek Presbyterian Church in Cleveland. The 
effective date is July 1, 1993. He is a candidate under the 
care of Mission Presbytery. 

b. His credo which follows was approved. 

I believe in one Holy and Sovereign God, who created all 
things good, and who is the only Lord over all of creation. God 
created human beings good; male and female, we were created in 
the image of God. We were created for fellowship with God, and 
also to be obedient to God. 

I believe that humanity has fallen from the original 
intention of fellowship with God; this has resulted out of human 
disobedience of God's word. Thus, we all live in a world of 
sin, separated from a God who loves us and desires us to be 
reconciled to him. In this sin-filled world we lack the harmony 
of a right relationship with 



194 



our Creator, for a sinful person is not worthy of a relationship 
with God; in this sin-filled world, we find sickness, enmity, 
and injustice; in this sin-filled world we encounter death. 

I believe that God sent his Son, Jesus Christ, to pay the 
price of our sin, that is, death. Christ is the Word made 
flesh, who dwelt among us. Christ lived a life void of sin; he 
was perfect and unblemished, and while he dwelt on this earth, 
he taught us what it means to live in relationship with God. 
Even though Christ was without blemish, He offered His life as 
a sacrifice for all the sins of humanity, for this was the will 
of God; Christ was perfectly obedient, even unto death on a 
cross. 

I believe that God raised Jesus Christ from the dead, thus 
claiming victory over sin, a victory which humans may share by 
the grace of God through faith in Christ, faith which is itself 
a gift of God's grace. I believe that there is no other way to 
claim victory over sin than through Jesus Christ. 

I believe that, while the full manifestation of the victory 
over sin which God has won for us will become clear when Christ 
returns, we are nevertheless saved into a newness of life which 
is effective today. That is, we are now empowered to combat the 
effects of sin in our life. No longer do we need to stand by 
idly and allow injustice, oppression, enmity dominate our lives; 
rather, Christ has empowered and commissioned us to speak out 
and fight sin when we confront it in our lives. 

I believe in the Holy Spirit, which empowers us to live a 
Christ-transformed life in the midst of a world of sin. 

I believe that the Bible is, through the Holy Spirit, the 
unique and authoritative word of God and witness to Jesus 
Christ, for all generations. 

I believe that Jesus Christ is my Savior and my Lord, and 
I seek to obey Him in my life.

Response Regarding Overture 92-96. On Clarifying the Church's Desire to Accept 
Money Generated From the Tobacco Industry 

We have received the following correspondence from the Office of the General 
Assembly: 

200 



The 205th General Assembly (1993) took the following action on the overture (s) 
sent by your presbytery in previous years: 



That the response be approved, with comment. 

Response: The 204th General Assembly (1992) adopted an overture that 
requests clarification as to whether the General Assembly desires to 
accept money and gifts generated directly or indirectly from the tobacco 
industry. The Committee on Mission Responsibility Through Investment 
(MRTI) developed a paper on vocation and conscience that responds to 
this concern. It is available from the Office on MRTl/Environmental 
Justice. (Final Report) 

The committee urges the Mission Responsibility Through Investment 
Committee to hold one of its regular meetings within the bounds of the 
Presbytery of Salem in order to seek appropriate ways to continue 
conversations with the presbyteries and congregations related to the 
tobacco industry. 



38. Salem Presbytery referred to Presbytery's Council for implementation 
the recommendation from the General Assembly that a meeting of the 
Mission Responsibility Through Investment Committee be held within 
the bounds of Salem Presbytery. 



Presbytery joined in a service of Honorable Retirement for the Reverend Mr. H. 
Reid Montgomery, the Reverend Mr. Allen E. Morrison, and the Reverend Mr. Harold 
E. Fuller, Jr. Wade Balsley, John E. Eliason, and John M. Handley spoke, 
respectively, of the contributions of each retiree to the Church during his 
ministry. John Handley presented to each a framed Certificate of Retirement on 
behalf of Presbytery. 



Presbytery heard a brief but informative report from General Assembly 
Commissioners Laura Spangler, Margaret Marks, Dusty Fiedler, Charles Williams, 
Richard Boyd, Joe Spears, David Beal, Edward Mack, and Youth Advisory Delegate 
Charles Smith. 



There being no further business, the Nineteenth Stated Meeting of Salem 
Presbytery was adjourned with prayer by the Moderator at 12:20 p.m. The next 
Stated Meeting will begin at 9:00 a.m. on October 26, 1993, at the First 
Presbyterian Church in Winston-Salem, North Carolina.

SALEM PRESBYTERY 

SEXUAL MISCONDUCT POLICY 
AND ITS PROCEDURES 
ADOPTED

LEES-MCRAE COLLEGE 
BANNER ELK, NORTH CAROLINA

1 SALEM PRESBYTERY POLICY ON SEXUAL HARASSMENT AND MISCONDUCT 



2 SECTION I. POLICY STATEMENT 

3 It is the policy of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) that all church members, 

4 church officers, non-member employees, and volunteers of governing bodies and 

5 entities of the church are to maintain the integrity of the ministerial, 

6 employment, and professional relationship at all times. Sexual misconduct is not 

7 only a violation of the principles set forth in Scripture, but also of the 

8 ministerial, pastoral, employment, and professional relationship. It is never 

9 permissible or acceptable. 

10 SECTION II. INTRODUCTION 

11 This introductory section of Salem Presbytery's "Policy on Sexual Harassment 

12 and Misconduct" is a sharing of the philosophy which shapes the specific policy 

13 guidelines. Many people will be tempted to read the policy and procedures 

14 without taking the time to read and understand the philosophy. Please work 

15 through the material found in the philosophy, much of which comes directly from 

16 the General Assembly. 

17 This policy on sexual harassment and misconduct by persons in positions of 

18 religious leadership arises out of an awareness that the Presbyterian Church 

19 (U.S.A.), Salem Presbytery and its churches have been given a public and a 

20 spiritual trust. In writing this policy we are concerned with offering 

21 guidelines that set appropriate standards of behavior, assure appropriate 

22 intervention to alleged incidents of misconduct, care for all involved, and 

23 provide information to help prevent future incidence of abuse. We are also aware 

24 that in addition to the needs of survivors and alleged offenders, congregations 

25 and those in employment settings are also affected. Our concern is for a policy 

26 that will assist in protecting the vulnerable, and calls for accountability, 

27 healing, justice, restitution, restoration and vindication. A principal 

28 criterion for our work has been: will this policy serve the Church by guiding 

29 us to act for justice and healing? 

30 The need for a policy on sexual misconduct by those in positions of religious 

31 leadership is painfully apparent. The incidence of reported cases is sobering. 

32 Some presbyteries have multiple cases pending. Statistical evidence suggests 

33 between 10 and 23 percent of clergy nationwide have engaged in self -acknowledged 

34 inappropriate sexual behavior or contact with parishioners, clients, employees, 

35 etc. within a professional relationship. 1 The toll of suffering caused by such 

36 behavior is staggering. The legal consequences for the denomination are 

37 enormous. We are facing a crisis terrible in its proportions and implications. 

38 We recognize that a primary barrier to responding appropriately to sexual 

39 misconduct is because often religious leaders are not able to recognize and 

40 believe that such behavior happens. In a context of trust it is hard to 

41 recognize abusive behavior because we do not expect to see it. Rather, just as 

42 in families where incest occurs, we often may find what we choose not to see. 2 

43 When that occurs we, too, are complicit whether knowing or unknowingly, in the 

44 abuse. Now that our consciousness is raised, we must assume responsibility for 

45 appropriate intervention and prevention strategies. 

46 Because religious leadership is a covenantal relationship that presumes the 

47 trustworthy exercise of power on behalf of those in our care, sexual misconduct 

48 is a tragic betrayal of that trust and is an abuse of power. All who enter 

49 professional relationships with religious leaders trust themselves to one whom 

50 they expect will provide for their care, safety, and justice. The mutual consent 

51 necessary for an appropriate sexual relationship is not possible in a context in 

52 which power is inherently unequal. Persons in religious leadership, like all 

53 others in helping professions who have access to people in their most vulnerable 

54 moments, are always responsible for keeping appropriate boundaries and assuring 

55 the safety of those in their trust. 



213 



e-6 By the adoption and use of this sexual misconduct policy and procedures, 



Salem Presbytery seeks to offer guidance in the kind of behavior appropriate to 

I T the role and responsibilities of religious leadership, to suggest procedures for 

159 accountability when allegations of misconduct are made, and to assure appropriate 

1 60 physical, emotional, and spiritual care for all involved. The goals of this 

161 policy are: 

1 62 1. To set and enforce standards of ethical behavior consistent with 

1 63 Scripture . 

i 64 2. To recommend procedures for inquiry and effective response to allegations 

I 65 of sexual misconduct and protection of persons in the church. 

56 3. To assure that the personal, emotional, spiritual, pastoral, legal, and 

1 67 financial needs of all affected parties are addressed in cases of sexual 

168 misconduct in the Church. 
.69 4. To serve as a guide for the prevention of sexual misconduct in the church 

170 through appropriate training and supervision of employees, education of laity and 

1 71 clergy, and nurturance of the spiritual, emotional, and physical well-being of 

1 72 all God's people. 

1 73 5. To assure that all necessary steps are taken to conform to the 

174 requirements and protection guaranteed under the Form of Government and the Rules 

75 of Discipline . 

76 6. To further the peace, unity and purity of the Church through justice and 

77 compassion. 

78 This policy and its procedures reflect a keen awareness that child sexual 

79 abuse, as well as many instances of sexual misconduct with adults represent forms 
90 of compulsive behavior. 3 Typically such persons will minimize, rationalize, and 

A deny their inappropriate behavior. Offenders will continue in such behavior 

_z until they are confronted and receive treatment. Apart from intervention these 

83 offenders will not recover control of their actions. 

84 Sexual abuse with adults or children represents the most severe level of 

85 self -alienation and therefore of spiritual alienation. This policy helps us to 

86 respond pastorally to alleged offenders because it puts in place a mechanism for 

87 confronting the self -destructive behavior of those who are offenders. Healing 

88 will require breaking their denial. Only then can the restorative process of 

89 repentance begin. Pastorally, intervention represents a significant opportunity 

90 to restore spiritual as well as emotional healing for offenders though this is, 

91 admittedly, a long-term process. The timely, informed presence of the Response 

92 Management Team is intended to assure that those who are innocent of the 

93 allegations receive informed and sensitive care. The process proposed will not 

94 leave unresolved charges to haunt one forever. 

95 This policy and its procedures makes possible a pastoral response to the 

96 adult victim who has survived sexual misconduct. These survivors have 

97 experienced the profound betrayal not only of one whom they trusted — often at a 

98 moment of vulnerability—but also one whose power includes the symbolic power of 

99 a representative of God and the Church. These survivors are often deeply 
.00 ashamed, fear the offender, and fear the blame and rejection they anticipate from 

01 the congregation or church agency in which they work. They feel isolated. These 

02 emotions may inhibit reporting for several years, or forever. Moreover, there 

03 is a painful overlap between survivors of child sexual abuse and those abused as 

04 adults. Additionally, some victims of child sexual abuse become abusers 

05 themselves. In this case of re-victimization, disclosure and recovery are all 

06 the more difficult. However, some survivors will eventually recognize and name 

07 their abuse, seek help, and find the courage and support to break the silence, 

08 shame, guilt, and fear imposed. At this point the survivor may choose to call 
nQ her or his abuser to account. It is impossible to predict whether and when this 

m will occur in the life of a survivor. This policy assures that there will be a 

T timely, informed, and skilled response to the survivor's choice to risk breaking 

12 the secrecy that has kept them in bondage and perpetuated the abuse. This policy 



214 



113 also assures that emotional and spiritual guidance will be found and made 

114 available as quickly as possible. 

115 Too often adult victims have found that their worst fears of rejection have 

116 become realized in their congregation or employing entity. This policy is a 

117 visible sign that an institution which has been complicit in the survivor's 

118 victimization will now act positively to advocate for her or his healing and for 

119 justice. The policy is a source of clear and accessible information so that 

120 accuser /victims may know where to turn at the point they decide to disclose the 

121 sexual misconduct. Through quick discernment of the facts and through preventive 

122 education, the congregation or employing entity may be less likely to respond by 

123 blaming the victim. 

124 This policy also helps to assure the Church's pastoral response to survivors 

125 of child or adolescent sexual abuse by religious leaders. These are the most 

126 vulnerable victims. For them betrayal of trust comes before they have developed 

127 an adequate sense of self or an adult sexuality. Their spirituality is also 

128 seriously affected by abuse of the symbolic power of a religious leader. 

129 This policy and its procedures make a significant advance pastorally, and for 

130 justice, by recognizing that most children will not break the secret of abuse 

131 while a child. 4 Most will repress that abuse until later experiences or when 

132 developmental factors allow recall. Others may not repress, but instead may need 

133 the security of adult status in order to dare and speak. Adult victims may 

134 repress their abuse or not be able to come forward for years following the abuse. 

135 For this reason, the Rules of Discipline state there is no time limit placed on 

136 the filing of charges in cases where sexual abuse is alleged. (D-7.1100.) 

137 This policy and its procedures clearly avow that abuse is wrong, thus 

138 breaking the destructive cycle of denial and self -hatred that traps survivors in 

139 their shame, fear, and danger. The spiritual alienation that usually results 

140 from the sexual abuse of children and adolescents is doubly difficult when the 

141 perpetrator is a religious leader. This policy and its procedures on sexual 

142 misconduct intends to provide quick, informed, and caring responses to assure 

143 survivors due process and empowers them in the same context where their own power 

144 and identity were previously denied. 

145 Congregations and employing entities also need to receive pastoral responses 

146 when an incident of sexual misconduct occurs within them. This policy and its 

147 procedures provides a way to confront the denial that predictably occurs in these 

148 contexts. Just as incest in a family means members are in complicity if only in 

149 not seeing and not believing, so in congregations and employing entities 

150 important questions need to be pursued and experiences . need to be processed. 

151 This policy and its procedures names and describes sexual misconduct in ways that 

152 will help reduce vulnerability and exploitations. Systemically, it is clear that* 

153 if the experience of exploitation and the resulting grief and anger are not 

154 worked through, the congregation or entity continues to suffer and may, in fact, 

155 be re-victimized because its denial is not confronted. 

156 The denomination's integrity and ministry is at stake in the way we respond 

157 to the reality of sexual misconduct by those we entrust with religious 

158 leadership. This wound in the body of Christ cannot be healed easily, but 

159 healing can occur when accompanied by our commitment to join informed compassion 

160 with a process that seeks justice and healing, restoration, restitution and 

161 vindication. 

162 Since those experiencing crises in their own personal or professional lives 

163 are more vulnerable to acting in inappropriate ways, governing bodies need to be 

164 ever more caring of their minister's personal and professional lives. The more 

165 knowledge of its ministers that Salem Presbytery or the employing entity has, the 

166 more responsive that body can be in averting potential crisis. The governing 

167 body or entity needs to remember that dealing with racial ethnic persons requires 

168 cultural sensitivity. Obviously, the more care able to be given to all staff and 

169 volunteers the better, not only in terms of prevention of sexual misconduct, but 

170 also in nurturing those who all too frequently receive too little nurturance 

171 themselves.

.72 SECTION III. STANDARDS OF CONDUCT 

"As God who called you is holy, be holy yourselves in all your conduct." 

.74 "Tend the flock of God that is your charge, not under compulsion but 

.75 willingly/ not for sordid gain but eagerly, do not lord it over those in your 

.76 charge but be examples to the flock. " 

.77 " "A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another, even as I have 

f. 78 loved you, that you also love one another. By this all people will know that you 

.79 are disciples, if you have love for one another." 

.80 I Peter 1:15; James 3:1; John 13:34-35 NRSV 

31 The ethical conduct of all who minister in the name of Jesus Christ is of 

1.82 vital importance to the Church for through these representatives is conveyed an 

(.83 understanding of God and the gospel's good news. "Their manner of life should 

.84 be a demonstration of the Christian gospel in the Church and the world." 

.85 The Book of Order , G-6.0106, G-14.0103 

.86 A. Christian conduct and sexuality 

.87 A person in authority in the church should be aware of his/her "power". 

.88 Church leaders (this includes pastors, elders, youth advisors, etc.) are visible 

.89 and influential. Their speech and behavior is observed. They are living 

.90 examples of the Christian faith. Therefore, it is advisable to: 

.91 1. Be careful how language is used. Words can hurt. It should be a matter 

.92 of concern to persons in authority to learn why certain words or humor can 

.93 be offensive to some people, and to refrain from condescending or insulting 

.94 language. Church leaders should strive to be inclusive in their use of 

.95 language. 

t 2. Be careful with the way people are touched or handled physically. 

l»7 Persons in authority ought to be sensitive to the difference between 

.98 friendly or compassionate warmth and uncomfortable or intimidating intimacy. 

.99 There is no formula to explain exactly what is welcome and what is unwanted 

100 behavior. The church leader needs to pay attention to body language and 

!01 appreciate the variety of different persons' reactions to touch. When these 

102 subtle clues of body language, as well as verbal feedback, are respected, 

!03 the church leader should be able to make an appropriate response. 

:04 3. Be aware of the messages that one's own body language and dress can send 

!05 to another person, so that the person in authority is not misunderstood as 

!06 being sexually inviting, provocative, or seductive. 

!07 4. Keep a check on the emotional content of close working relationships. 

108 Physical proximity, stress, shared concerns, and spending long periods of 

'•09 time with a colleague can enhance temptation for sexual misconduct. 

510 5. Intimate sexual expression should be reserved for a partner in a 

111 relationship of marriage. 

512 6. Assure that no person is treated as an object, but as a unique child of 

!13 God. Assume that every person has a heart, mind, and soul, as well as a 

'.14 body. 

115 B. Sexual misconduct 

116 The basic principles guiding sexual misconduct in the policy are: 

■17 1. Sexual misconduct is a violation of the roles of persons in authority, 

!18 who are called upon to exercise integrity, sensitivity, and caring in a 

a trust relationship. Such conduct breaks the covenant which obligates the 

y person in authority to act in the best interest of the participants. 



21P 



221 2. Sexual misconduct is a misuse of authority and power which breaches 

222 Christian ethical principles by misusing a relationship of trust to gain 

223 advantage over another for personal pleasure in an abusive, exploitative, or 

224 unjust manner. If a participant in a church-related program initiates or 

225 invites sexual activity, it is the responsibility of the person in authority 

226 to maintain the appropriate role and prohibit a sexual relationship. 

227 3. Sexual misconduct can take advantage of the vulnerability of children 

228 and persons who are less powerful to act for their own welfare. It violates 

229 the Christian obligation to protect the vulnerable from harm. It is a 

230 rejection of the gospel mandate for servants of God to work to bring 

231 wholeness to a broken world. 

232 SECTION IV. RESPONSE TO SEXUAL MISCONDUCT ALLEGATIONS 

233 A. Principles 

234 Salem Presbytery, its churches and entities respect the following principles 

235 when responding to allegations of sexual misconduct within their bounds: 

236 1. The church seeks healing and assures protection of all persons who are 

237 involved. 

238 2. Privacy of all persons is to be respected and confidentiality of 

239 communications is guaranteed (within the bounds of civil law, which requires 

240 certain types of allegations to be reported, e.g. child abuse). 

241 3. All persons are assured fair procedures in the disciplinary process of 

242 the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) according to the Book of Order . 

243 4. Any person affected by allegations of sexual misconduct (this includes 

244 both the accuser and the accused) should have counseling assistance 

245 available to him/her. This may include therapeutic, legal, or pastoral 

246 counseling. 

247 B. Report of an Incident/THE MANDATED REPORTER 

248 A report of an incident of sexual misconduct might come in a variety of ways. 

249 The report should never be taken lightly, disregarded, or be allowed to 

250 circulate. Reports should be treated with highest confidentiality. 

251 What to do when receiving a report of sexual misconduct: 

252 A person who receives a report of alleged misconduct should immediately 

253 inform a higher level supervisor (e.g. the pastor of the church, the Presbytery 

254 Executive/ Stated Clerk, the Committee on Ministry chairperson, the director of 

255 a program, etc., or report directly to the Salem Presbytery Response Group [see 

256 C. The Response Procedure]). The person who receives the initial report is 

257 called the "mandated reporter" and may be required by law to report the alleged 

258 incident to civil authorities (the Salem Presbytery response procedure will help 

259 this mandated reporter in understanding his/her legal obligations). 

260 C. The Response Procedure/RESPONSE GROUP AND RESPONSE COORDINATION TEAM 

261 1. THE RESPONSE GROUP. The mandated reporter and/or the higher authority 

262 who have received the alleged incident report to the Salem Presbytery 

263 Response Group. The RESPONSE GROUP is a pool of trained and prepared 

264 persons within Salem Presbytery who are available to respond to sexual 

265 misconduct allegations. Their expertise should include: psychological 

266 counseling (with particular experience in the area of sexual abuse as well 

267 as pastoral care), child advocacy, law, conflict management, insurance, and 

268 personnel management. 



217 



2. THE RESPONSE COORDINATION TEAM. To ensure that the governing body is 
ready to meet the variety of needs present, an independent Response 
Coordination Team shall be named and its membership clearly publicized. 
This team will not investigate the allegation or in any way function as a 
special disciplinary committee, but should confine itself to coordinating a 
process that will meet the specific needs of the situation. The Chairperson 
of the Response Group will immediately call a Response Coordination Team 
from its membership (hereafter referred to as RCT) . It is the task of the 
RCT to manage the response procedure fairly and with compassion. In 
maintaining this role throughout the response procedure, the RCT will 
advise, guide, and refer. It will never prosecute, defend, or counsel any 
parties. Its main activity is during a pre- judicial stage at which 
investigation and resolution is sought without the necessity of the judicial 
process of the presbytery. The RCT should consist of at least five people, 
including both male and female members, and should reflect the ethnic 
background of both the accuser and the accused. It should also include as 
much as possible the areas of expertise defined above for the Response 
Group. Middle governing body executive staff shall be prohibited from 
membership on the RCT. 

RESPONSE TEAM ACTION: The RCT will meet within five days of receiving 
the initial report and take the following action within thirty days: 

a. Receive the allegation of sexual misconduct. 

b. Notify the affected Tier sons and/or entities of the RCT's role in the 
handling of the allegations and expected time table. 

c. Notify civil authorities , if necessary by law. 

d. Assess and respond to the needs of all the affected persons (see 
Appendix B ) . 

e. Explore non-iudicial solutions (see Appendix C) . 

f . Write a report to the stated clerk of the presbytery. This report 
should include: the names of all those affected, an account of the 
allegations, the names of witnesses (professionals or others who may 
have been involved in the matter ) , the RCT ' s recommendations for further 
action, and copies of the relevant documents. 

3. JUDICIAL ACTION. Should pre- judicial investigation warrant judicial 
action, the role of the RCT is pre-empted by the judicial process of the 
church. Judicial response will vary according to the status of the accused: 
ministers and church members are subject to the discipline under the Book of 
Order (D-5.0100), and the relationship of ministers to their congregations 
is subject to the oversight of the presbytery (G-14.0602, G-14.0603, G- 
11.0402, G-11.0502j); other persons may not be under the jurisdiction of the 
Book of Order. 

a. SPECIAL DISCIPLINARY COMMITTEE. When the accused is covered by the 
Book of Order (a minister or church member), the investigation is 
continued by a Special Disciplinary Committee. 

Upon receipt of the report of the RCT, the stated clerk shall report 
to presbytery that an offense has been alleged. A Special Disciplinary 
Committee shall immediately be appointed. The Special Disciplinary 
Committee conducts its own inquiry promptly but thoroughly (see Book of 
Order Rules of Discipline Chapter 7). 

Church bodies must cooperate with civil authorities in an 
investigation of child sexual abuse or other criminal sexual misconduct. 
Church disciplinary proceedings cannot interfere with a criminal 
investigation by civil authorities and may have to be suspended until 
these are completed. 



218 



323 The session has jurisdiction for members of its church, and the 

324 disciplinary process is like that of a minister in the presbytery: a 

325 Special Disciplinary Committee is appointed and the session acts as a 

326 court to try the case (see D-8.0000). If the accused church member 

327 presents a letter of resignation from the church, the jurisdiction of 

328 the session ends, and the case is closed (D-5.0300 and D-7.0700). 

329 b. PERSONNEL COMMITTEE. If the accused is not covered by the Book of 

330 Order (is not a minister or church member), the case is transferred to 

331 a personnel committee or appointed administrative commission of the 

332 affected governing body. The personnel committee should be guided by 

333 written personnel policies (see Appendix D: RISK MANAGEMENT AND 

334 EMPLOYMENT RECORDS) and the report of the RCT to determine its course of 

335 action. It shall prepare a written report to be included in the 

336 permanent personnel file of the accused. The accused has the right to 

337 attach a written statement to the documents and the right to appeal the 

338 personnel committee's decision through the standard operating procedure 

339 of the governing body. 

340 c. RECORD KEEPING. Whether the accused is covered by the Book of Order 

341 or not, thorough yet confidential records should be kept, and a summary 

342 report should be included in the personnel file of the accused. 

343 SECTION V. EDUCATION AND TRAINING 

344 The issue of sexual misconduct is becoming a more urgent concern of our 

345 churches and church-related bodies. There is an emerging need to educate and 

346 train a variety of people, including ministers, officers, staff volunteers, and 

347 others. All persons working under the auspices of Salem Presbytery should have 

348 a knowledge of this policy and its procedures. Moreover, it is recommended that 

349 congregations and employing entities become pro-active in utilizing resources to 

350 educate people about the issues of sexual misconduct. It is particularly 

351 important for members of the Response Group to have a depth of knowledge in the 

352 field of sexual misconduct.

386 families in which incest occurs, other members of the congregation fail to see

388 victim(s).

J7 APPENDICES 

i 

?8 APPENDIX A 

99 DEFINITIONS 

30 Accused is the term used to represent the person against whom a claim of 

31 sexual misconduct is made. 

(32 Accuser/Victim is a term used to represent the person claiming knowledge of 

133 sexual misconduct by a person covered by this policy or a person claiming to have 

■34 been abused by a person covered under this policy. The accuser /victim may or may 

■35 not have been the victim of the alleged sexual misconduct (See also Child Sexual 

136 Abuse) . A person such as a family member, friend, or colleague may be the 

37 accuser. 

38 Adult - in the state of North Carolina, an adult is a person 18 years of age 

39 or older. 

10 Child - in the state of North Carolina, a child is a person under the age of 

11 18. 

12 Child Sexual Abuse includes, but is not limited to, any contact or 

13 interaction between a child and an adult when the child is being used for the 

14 sexual stimulation of the adult person or of a third person. The behavior may 

15 or may not involve touching. Sexual behavior between a child and an adult is 

16 always considered forced whether or not consented to by the child. No upper age 

17 limit for child sexual abuse has been given in this policy because the age of 
18. adulthood varies from state to state. The upper age limit is intended to be that 

recognized in the state in which the act is committed. 

20 Church when spelled with the initial capitalized refers to the Presbyterian 

21 Church (U.S.A.). Church when spelled with the initial in lowercase refers to 

22 local churches. The word congregation is used loosely for members and 

23 participants. 

24 Employee is the comprehensive term used to cover individuals who are hired 

25 or called to work for the Church for salary or wages. 

26 Entity is the term used to refer to any program or office managed by a board, 

27 committee, council, or other body whose membership is elected by a governing 

28 body. See Manual of the General Assembly, Standing Rule 47. 

29 Governing Body is a representative body composed of elders and ministers of 

30 the Word and Sacrament: sessions, presbyteries, synods, and the General 

31 Assembly. A governing body may establish entities such as day care centers, 

32 conference centers, camps, or homes for the aged. A governing body may have both 

33 church members and non-members as employees. 

34 High Risk Occupation is that which call for a person to work in close contact 

35 with those who are vulnerable and less capable of protecting themselves, with 

36 children, elderly persons, those who are wholly or partially incapacitated, or 

37 counseling clients having emotional or personal problems. 

38 Inquiry is the term used in the Rules of Discipline to determine whether 

39 charges should be filed based upon allegations of an offense received by a 
10 governing body. See Book of Order D-7.0200. 



11 Mandated Reporter is described by some states' laws as a person who is 

12 required to report any and all suspected incidents of child abuse, including 
A child sexual abuse that come to their attention. State laws vary from defining 
▼ "all persons having knowledge" as mandated reporters to specifying very limited 

45 lists of professions whose members are required to report. 



222 



446 Persons Covered by this policy include church members, church officers, 

447 ministers, and non-members who are employees or volunteers under the supervision 

448 of governing bodies or entities, including those who are accused of sexual 

449 misconduct under circumstances in which (1) access to the accuser/victim is 

450 related to some form of service to or appointment by governing bodies or entities 

451 of the church, or (2) sexual misconduct in a non-church related setting raises 

452 questions for the Church of character and effectiveness. For example, this 

453 policy covers a non-member adult who sexually abuses a non-member teenager while 

454 "helping out" on a church- sponsored camping trip. 

455 Reasonable Suspicion is a subjective criterion that refers to a belief or 

456 opinion based on facts or circumstances of sexual misconduct that are sufficient 

457 enough for a prudent person to want to inquire further, to take protective 

458 action, or report to authorities. State child abuse reporting laws may include 

459 wording that indicates what degree of suspicion or knowledge gives rise to the 

460 duty to report. 

461 Response is the action taken by the governing body or entity when a report 

462 of sexual misconduct is received. It may include (1) inquiry into facts and 

463 circumstances, (2) possible disciplinary action (administrative or judicial or 

464 both), (3) pastoral care for accuser/victims and their families and others, and 

465 (4) pastoral care and rehabilitation for the accused and care for their families. 

466 Response Coordination Team is a body constituted by a governing body or 

467 entity to facilitate the process of responding to allegations of sexual 

468 misconduct by a person covered under this policy. The structure and function of 

469 the RCT are detailed in Section IV. C. of this report. 

470 Secular Authorities are the governmental bodies, whether city, county, state, 

471 or federal, who are given the responsibility to investigate, criminally 

472 prosecute, and/or bring civil charges against individuals accused of sexual 

473 crimes or offenses against adults and children. 

474 Secular Law is the body of municipal, state, and federal laws and is often 

475 referred to collectively as civil and criminal law. Prohibited behavior 

476 addressed by this policy may result in criminal and/or civil charges filed under 

477 secular law. 

478 Sexual Harassment as defined for this policy is as follows: 

479 Unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or 

480 physical conduct of a sexual nature constitute sexual harassment when: 

481 1. Submission to such conduct is made either explicitly or implicitly a term 

482 or a condition of an individual ' s employment or their continued status in an 

483 institution. 

484 2. Submission to or rejection of such conduct by an individual is used as 

485 the basis for employment decisions affecting such individual, or 

486 3. Such conduct has the purpose or effect of unreasonably interfering with 

487 an individual's work performance by creating an intimidating, hostile, or 

488 offensive working environment. 

489 Sexual Misconduct is the comprehensive term used in this policy and its 

490 procedures to include: 

491 1. Child sexual abuse as defined above. 

492 2. Sexual harassment as defined above. 

493 3. Rape or sexual contact by force, threat, or intimidation. 

494 4. Sexual conduct (such as offensive, obscene or suggestive language or 

495 behavior, unacceptable visual contact, unwelcome touching or fondling) which is 

496 injurious to the physical or emotional health of another. 



223 



5. Sexual Malfeasance defined as sexual conduct within a ministerial (e.g. 
clergy with a member of the congregation) or professional relationship (e.g./ 
counselor with a client, lay employee with a church member, presbytery executive 
with a committee member who may be a lay person, a minister, or an elder) . 
Sexual conduct includes unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, 
and verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature. This definition is not meant 
to cover relationships between spouses, nor is it meant to restrict church 
professionals from having normal, mutual, social, intimate, or marital 
relationships . 

6. Sexual Abuse is found in 0-7.1100. 

7. Sexual intercourse with a person or persons outside a relationship of 
marriage . 

Victim: (See Accuser/Victim) 

Volunteer is the term used for those who provide services for governing 
bodies and entities of the Church and receive no benefits or remuneration. 
Volunteers include persons elected or appointed to serve on boards, committees, 
and other groups. For purposes of this policy volunteers are treated the same 
as employees. Liabilities of the governing body or entity may be the same for 
volunteers as for employees. 



274 



516 APPENDIX B 

517 MEETING THE NEEDS OF ALL INVOLVED 

518 In cases of sexual misconduct there are needs that have to be met for the 

519 good of all persons and groups. The Response Coordination Team will coordinate 

520 the process of meeting the needs of accuser /victims and their families, the 

521 accused and family, employing entities, congregations, and governing bodies. 

522 A. The Needs of the Accuser /Victim 

523 The governing body, employing entity, and RCT shall assure that adequate 

524 treatment and care are available for alleged victims of sexual misconduct and 

525 their families. The accuser /victim or family sometimes is so angry and alienated 

526 from the church that offers of help may be perceived as insincere or as attempts 

527 at a cover-up. If the accuser /victim or family at first refuses, the church 

528 should continue to offer help. Above all. the church should not act in a self- 

529 protective manner by ignoring the accuser /victims and their families. 

530 The extent of the damage to the accuser /victims of sexual misconduct will 

531 vary from person to person, and is influenced by such factors as the degree or 

532 severity of abuse, the age and emotional condition of the victim, human dynamics, 

533 and the importance of one's religious faith. The governing body, entity, and 

534 response management team is to assume in all cases that the accuser /victim has 

535 been wounded by the experience. 

536 Feelings of guilt, shame, anger, mistrust, lowered self-esteem, unworthiness , 

537 and feelings of alienation from God, self, the religious community, and family 

538 are frequent injuries suffered by accuser /victims. It is important for the RCT 

539 to be sensitive to the victim's pain and need for healing, and to act by making 

540 appropriate pastoral care available. 

541 The following are some of the needs of the accuser/victim: 

542 To Be Heard and Taken Seriously 

543 From the time that the accuser /victim is first able to indicate that sexual 

544 misconduct has occurred, that person should receive immediate attention and 

545 serious consideration from all church representatives. 

546 To Receive Pastoral and Therapeutic Support 

547 The accuser/victim may require spiritual and professional assistance as a 

548 result of sexual misconduct. The RCT should offer to help arrange for such 

549 support from a pastor and therapist, if the accuser /victim desires. Discussions 

550 with such people would be confidential, privileged conversations. 

551 To Be Informed About Church Process and Progress With Regard To the Accusation 

552 One member of the RCT should be the church contact person for the 

553 accuser /victim. Frequently, this contact person will give the accuser/victim 

554 information as to what is happening in the church as a result of the accusation. 

555 To Receive Legal Advice 

556 The RCT should suggest that the accuser /victim might benefit from independent 

557 legal advice. (Legitimate claims might be more effectively pursued and flimsy 

558 or false claims discouraged. ) If requested, the RCT should suggest ways in which 

559 independent legal advice can be obtained. 

560 To Be Assured of An Advocate of One's Own Choosing 

561 An accuser/victim may need continuing moral support from one individual who 

562 is present while the church process deals with the accusation. This advocate may 

563 be a relative, friend, or someone suggested by the RCT. This advocate could 

564 speak for the accuser/victim, if necessary. 



225 



55 To Receive Restitution 

The accuser/victim may simply wish to report sexual misconduct but often some 

57 form of restitution is wanted. The RCT can suggest that the accuser /victim work 

58 out with the individual's pastor or therapist exactly what restitution is sought 

59 - for instance, financial compensation, removal from office of the accused, 

70 admission and apology from the accused, etc. 

71 To Be Assured That Justice Will Be Pursued 

72 The accuser /victim needs to be told by the RCT, and shown by the processes 

73 of the church, that justice is being pursued through fact finding, truth telling, 

74 confrontation, and agreement which may include removal or temporary exclusion of 

75 the accused from office or adjudication of the complaint. 

76 To Receive Healing and Reconciliation 

77 In addition to specific forms of restitution mentioned above, the 

78 accuser/victim needs to receive a sense of healing and reconciliation with all 

79 concerned - the self, the family, the church, and ideally, the accused. The RCT 

30 can help bring this about using the church's processes and resources. While the 

31 above are needs of the accuser/victim, one recognizes that all of these needs may 

32 also not be met through a reasonable handling of a specific case, but may only 

33 occur over a lengthier period of time. All of these needs, however, should be 

34 taken seriously and compassionately, and the rights of the accuser/victim 

35 respected. 

36 B. The Needs of the Accused 

37 The governing body or entity shall offer treatment and care for the accused 

38 as well as alleged victims and families. If the accused is a minister, this is 

39 the responsibility of the Committee on Ministry. (G-11.0501) 

Feelings of guilt, shame, anger, mistrust, lowered self esteem, depression, 

Jl unworthiness, and feelings of alienation from God, self, the religious community, 

J2 and family are often experienced by the accused. In addition, there may be fear 

J3 of job loss, incarceration, and indignation if an allegation is false. 

}4 When a person is acquitted of charges, it is important for the governing body 

?5 or entity to see that the acquittal is disseminated as widely as possible within 

96 their power, unless doing so would further injure the person falsely accused. 

J7 A church member or officer accused of sexual misconduct (the accused) usually 

38 has need of the following under this policy and its procedures document: 

39 Information About the Charges 

30 When an allegation of sexual misconduct has been received by the RCT, it may 

31 notify the accused of the allegations. If the Team does notify the accused, it 

32 shall do so in writing and may advise the accused to have no further contact of 

33 any sort with the accuser, the victim, or the victim's family. It shall warn the 

34 accused that any statements made to the Team may be used against the accused in 

35 later proceedings. 

36 If the Team does contact the accused in writing of the allegations, it should 

37 explain the process used by the governing body when an allegation of sexual 
)8 misconduct has been made and the options available to the accused. It shall 
39 recommend that the accused seek legal advice immediately since the allegation 
.0 could result in church discipline or civil or criminal court action. 

LI Later, if the allegation proceeds to the initiation of a disciplinary case, 

.2 provisions of the Rules of Discipline . Chapter VII, Disciplinary Cases, shall be 

.3 followed. 



# 



226 



614 Legal Advice and Assistance 

615 The accused may seek legal advice from any source, but it should be noted 

616 that in church disciplinary or remedial cases "no person shall act as counsel who 

617 is not a member of the Presbyterian Church (U. S. A.)" (D-8.1000) 

618 Stated Clerks should maintain a list of Presbyterian lawyers who are willing 

619 to consider representing parties in church disciplinary cases. 

620 The accused is responsible for his or her attorney fees but, if an allegation 

621 proceeds to the initiation of a disciplinary case and the accused is unable to 

622 employ counsel, the accused may request appointment of counsel under the 

623 provisions of D-8. 1000b. 

624 Personal Care 

625 Whether the allegations about the accused are eventually found to be true or 

626 not, the accused deserves to be treated with Christian kindness and respect. 

627 In addition to recommending that the accused seek legal advice, the RCT may 

628 suggest that the accused seek spiritual support or professional counseling with 

629 someone whose conversations would be recognized by courts as confidential and 

630 privileged communication. The Team may suggest names of impartial clergy or 

631 therapists to the accused, but should not itself engage in counseling because 

632 their conversations would not be confidential and will actually be reported to 

633 others. People in staff positions, such as presbytery executives or stated 

634 clerks, should not engage in personal counseling of the accused because of their 

635 potential involvement in disciplinary process. 

636 Assistance in Relating to Session and Congregation 

637 When an allegation of sexual misconduct is made against a minister, the 

638 congregation is often aware of a problem. Rumors fly despite attempts at 

639 confidentiality. This is particularly true if disciplinary process is initiated. 

640 In all contact with the accused, care must be taken that his or her rights 

641 to fair procedures under the Book of Order will not be violated. Before each and 

642 every conference with the accused, the Committee on Ministry shall inform the 

643 accused of the right to remain silent and to be represented by counsel (6—11.0502 

644 j, D-7.0900). It has authority to do so under 6-11.0502i and G-11.0502j, but 

645 both the Committee on Ministry and the RCT, as part of the electing government 

646 body, must be careful to "take no further action on the case" themselves if the 

647 matter has been transmitted to a permanent . judicial commission. (D-4.0200,2c) 

648 At present, there is no constitutional prohibition against presbytery taking 

649 necessary action in matters which are affected by the case as long as presbytery 

650 does not intrude upon the case itself. 

651 Each situation will be different, requiring tailor-made assistance by the 

652 Committee on Ministry. The RCT may alert the Committee on Ministry initially to 

653 the anticipated needs of a particular congregation and recommend expert 

654 resources. The Team itself should not become directly involved with the session 

655 or congregation. 

656 Economic Security and Care For Family of Accused 

657 When an allegation of sexual misconduct has been made against a minister, the 

658 economic security of the accused is directly threatened, along with reputation, 

659 career, and family relationships. Again, the Committee on Ministry can be of 

660 assistance. 

661 The RCT may alert the Committee on Ministry to the possible spiritual, 

662 emotional, and financial needs of the family of the accused and recommend expert 

663 resources. The RCT should not itself become personally involved with trying to 

664 meet these needs. 



227 



65 C. The Needs of a Congregation in a Context of Sexual Misconduct 

1 1 The governing body, employing entity, and RCT should be aware of the problems 

t>7 a congregation or employing entity may experience following allegations of sexual 

68 misconduct by a minister, employee, or volunteer. The allegations may polarize 

69 the congregation or organization, damage morale, create serious internal 

70 problems, and even limit the trust a congregation may place in succeeding 

71 pastors. Efforts should be taken to recognize and identify the problems and heal 

72 any damage that may be done to the congregation or organization. 

73 When there is sexual misconduct on the part of a minister, non-ordained 

74 staff, or volunteer in a particular congregation, a number of needs unique to 

75 that congregation will emerge since sexual misconduct impacts congregations in 

76 different ways. Therefore, these needs will not necessarily emerge in the same 

77 sequence in each situation. Depending on the parties involved in the sexual 

78 misconduct, some of the needs may not emerge. In any event, those managing the 

79 church's response to the sexual misconduct will want to know that the following 

80 needs may emerge: 

81 Pastoral Care 

82 Members and staff of the congregation will need pastoral care. If it is the 

83 pastor who is involved in the sexual misconduct, care will need to be provided 

84 by another member of the ordained staff (if the church is a multiple staff 

85 church) or by a trained interim pastor. If the pastor leaves as a result of 

86 sexual misconduct, in extreme cases a trained interim pastor or consultant in 

87 sexual misconduct may need to work with the congregation for an extended period 

88 of time. 

89 If it is not a pastor who is involved in the sexual misconduct, then the 

90 pastor will provide the needed care for the congregation. The pastor, if not 

91 previously trained in this specialty area, will need to consult with 




denominational specialists who will advise him or her how to proceed and any 
anticipated problems. 



94 Information About the Case 



95 Members of the congregation will need opportunities both to receive and give 

96 information. If a case of sexual misconduct becomes a matter of public knowledge 

97 within a congregation and if a pastor has been found guilty of sexual misconduct, 

98 the interim pastor or consultant may hold appropriate meetings with individuals, 

99 small groups, or with the whole congregation. Such meetings should provide 

00 information about sexual misconduct in general, Presbyterian polity and our 

01 judicial process, and how others who may have been victimized may be heard and 

02 ministered to. If the offender is not the pastor, then the pastor may perform 

03 these functions. At such meetings, one may expect members to vent their 

04 feelings. An opportunity for this to happen should be provided. If this venting 

05 does not take place, then it may create serious problems for the future of the 

06 congregation, for future pastors and for the governing body. Dynamics may differ 

07 somewhat in racial ethnic churches but no empirical studies have yet demonstrated 

08 different dynamics. 

09 Resource Persons 

10 In light of the above needs, the following are several resource persons whose 

11 services would be valuable to a congregation in the context of sexual misconduct: 

12 a trained interim pastor, a Committee on Ministry representative knowledgeable 

13 in polity and the effects of sexual misconduct in the church, a consultant or 

14 therapist with knowledge and experience in dealing with sexual misconduct, an 

15 attorney who can discuss legal aspects of a case, an insurance agent who can 

16 advise the congregation about their exposure to liability or coverage. 

17 D. The Needs of an Employing Entity in Cases of Sexual Misconduct 

^ The governing body, employing entity, and RCT should be aware of the problems 

19 a congregation or employing entity may experience following allegations of sexual 



228 



720 misconduct by a minister, employee, or volunteer. The allegations may polarize 

721 the congregation or organization, damage morale, create serious internal problems 

722 and even limit the trust a congregation may place in succeeding pastors. Efforts 

723 should be taken to recognize and identify the problems and heal the damage done 

724 to the congregation or organization. 

725 The "Employing Entity" is understood to include the session, the presbytery, 

726 the synod, a General Assembly entity, or a Presbyterian institution such as a 

727 seminary, school, or hospital. 

728 The employing entity will need: 

729 Good Employment Procedures 

730 Any of these employers should already have established, detailed employment 

731 procedures. Such procedures include reference checking prior to employment, a 

732 clearly defined grievance process, regular reviews of performance, and 

733 confidential channels whereby employees can voice concerns or apprehensions. It 

734 would be advisable to have legal advice as these procedures are developed, or 

735 legal review of those already in place. 

736 All employees should be given an employee handbook which would include a 

737 section on sexual misconduct - its definition and the appropriate action to take 

738 when it occurs. 

739 Clear Reporting Mechanisms and Legal Information 

740 The channels of reporting need to be made clear. If the accused is the 

741 accuser /victim' s supervisor, then there must be an alternative route to follow 

742 when reporting an alleged incident. 

743 If the employer has a large number of employees, a formal orientation to the 

744 work place would be important. At the time of the orientation, definitions of 

745 sexual misconduct and reporting procedures needs to be described, along with the 

746 misconduct consequences of which should be outlined in the personnel policies. 

747 Provisions for Counseling 

748 The personnel practices should include provision for pastoral or therapeutic 

749 counseling for accuser /victims and others. The budget of the institution needs 

750 to provide at least partial coverage of counseling costs. 

751 Provisions for Legal Costs 

752 Employer should develop a reserve fund for legal costs should there be a need 

753 to either prosecute or defend a case in church or civil courts. 

754 Resource Person 

755 The employer needs to have help from personnel experts, legal experts, 

756 pastoral counselors, and financial consultants. Presbyteries could locate these 

757 resources and make them known to sessions. 

758 E. The Needs of a Governing Body 

759 A governing body (to be distinguished from the employing entity or the 

760 congregation in which sexual misconduct is alleged) has special needs and 

761 responsibilities as well. These include: 

762 Clearly Established Sexual Misconduct Policy and Its Procedures 

763 It is the responsibility of the governing body to establish policy and its 

764 procedures governing cases of sexual misconduct in that jurisdiction. 

765 Allegations of sexual misconduct should be handled immediately, regardless of 

766 whether a written statement has been submitted in accordance with D-7.0300. The 

767 RCT described in this policy and its procedures is recommended as the way to 



229 



cc * respond to allegations. The procedure to be followed should be established and 

A made known in advance of any complaints. 

70 One of the more difficult questions faced by a Presbytery or Synod is whether 

71 an ordained minister should be placed on temporary administrative leave pending 

72 the resolution of allegations of sexual misconduct. A policy governing such 

73 leaves of absence should be adopted and followed carefully. 

74 Legal Advice 

75 The governing body may need competent legal counsel, particularly if 

76 allegations lead to judicial proceedings either under the Book of Order or in 

77 civil court. The attorney should be a Presbyterian familiar with Presbyterian 

78 polity (since the Book of Order requires that lead counsel before a Permanent 

79 Judicial Commission be a Presbyterian) , civil procedure, and the legal issues 

80 found in sexual tort, sexual harassment, and child abuse cases. 

81 Risk Management Advice and Liability Insurance 

82 A governing body may face liability awards in cases of sexual misconduct 

83 occurring within its jurisdiction. It is imperative that liability insurance 

84 which covers such occurrences be obtained, and representatives of the governing 

85 body should consult frequently with insurance carriers regarding risk management 

86 procedures . 

87 Education 

88 Elected and appointed officials of the governing body are very likely to be 

89 the ones who receive initial reports of sexual abuse within its jurisdiction. 

90 These persons should receive competent in-service training and education about 

91 the nature of such cases, together with careful preparation regarding the 
requirements of due process under the Book of Order. 

-Y An Established Procedure 

94 When a written statement of an alleged offense has been submitted to the 

95 clerk of session or stated Clerk of a governing body in accordance with D-7.0300, 

96 preliminary procedures in a disciplinary case begins automatically. (See Chapter 

97 VII, Rules of Discipline . ) 

98 A governing body should provide an established procedure when a situation 

99 occurs where a person either does not know how to or is not willing to file a 

00 written statement of an alleged offense to the clerk. Governing bodies are urged 

01 to use a RCT as described in this paper. 



230 



802 APPENDIX C 

803 NON-JUDICIAL SOLUTIONS 

804 Alternatives to Judicial Process 

805 Non-judicial dispute resolution processes are widely and successfully used 

806 in private conflicts as well as in civil and criminal cases. (See, for example, 

807 Section 18.03, Personnel Policies of the General Assembly, PCUSA. ) Religious 

808 bodies have served as valuable allies in the development of these alternatives, 

809 providing both incentive and resources for dispute resolution programs. 

810 When allegations of sexual misconduct in the church are made, it may 

811 sometimes be appropriate to resolve the matter without recourse to judicial 

812 process under the Book of Order . If such alternatives are pursued, however, it 

813 is essential that the matter be handled with full regard for the interests and 

814 rights of all affected parties. 

815 Alternatives to judicial process may include: 

816 1. Arbitration. In the arbitration process, all parties to a conflict 

817 agree to submit the dispute to an independent person or panel to determine 

818 the best resolution. In a sexual misconduct case, the arbitrator should be 

819 someone with extensive experience in non-judicial arbitration who is also 

820 familiar with Presbyterian polity. All affected parties should have the 

821 opportunity to present their case to the arbitrator, and the arbitrator's 

822 decision may be final (binding) or subject to appeal to a higher authority 

823 (non-binding) such as a disciplinary committee. 

824 2. Negotiation. In the negotiation process, advocates for the parties to 

825 a conflict are responsible for working out a solution which effectively 

826 resolves all issues and which protects the interests of all parties. In 

827 some cases, an individual may successfully represent his or her own 

828 interests rather than having an advocate, but this is rarely advisable. 

829 Again, for a negotiated settlement to be successful, all parties affected by 

830 the dispute should be represented in the negotiation and all issues should 

831 be resolved. 

832 3. Mediation. In the mediation process, the parties to a conflict are 

833 enabled through the assistance of a mediator to work out their own agreement 

834 for resolving the dispute. Mediation differs from both arbitration and 

835 negotiation in that the power to make the final decisions is retained by the 

836 parties themselves. The successful outcome of a mediation is a function 

837 (among other things) of the willingness and ability of the parties to reach 

838 agreement and the creativity of the mediator in helping to shape that 

839 agreement in the interests of all concerned. A critical role of the 

840 mediator is the establishment and maintenance of a power balance between the 

841 parties during the mediation process. 

842 4. Dismissal of Charges or Allegations. While not technically a dispute 

843 resolution process, dismissing or dropping the charges may sometimes be a 

844 way to resolve an allegation. This may happen because the charges are 

845 determined to be false or insignificant, or because the costs (financial or 

846 otherwise) of pursuing the charges are too high. For a dismissal to be 

847 effective, all parties must agree to it and all significant disputes should 

848 be set aside. Dismissal without this will very likely lead to continuing 

849 conflict and further damage to the parties and the church. 

850 These processes (except for final dismissal) are not mutually exclusive, and 

851 the failure of one process may lead to another. (For example, if mediation 

852 fails, the persons may decide to try negotiation by their advocates; if that 

853 fails, private arbitration could follow.) All the methods have strengths and 

854 weaknesses, depending on the nature of the conflict and the persons involved. 

855 In every method, the assistance of skilled professionals and adherence to 

856 professional standards are critical. The protection of confidentiality, common 



231 



agreement regarding the admissibility or inadmissibility of evidence obtained in 
the process, and guarantees of the due process rights of all persons are 
essential. 

In the context of sexual misconduct in the church, the use of an alternative 
process may be in the best interest of the parties and the church. The success 
of the process, however, will be dependent upon many significant factors, 
including the degree and kind of injury suffered; the willingness of all parties 
to work to heal or remedy that injury; the resources available to assist the 
processes of healing; the expertise of the arbitrators, mediators, or other 
persons involved in facilitating the process; and the quality of the resolutions 
agreed upon. Informal or secret agreements which do not address all issues or 
meet the concerns of all parties are not in the best interest of the church. 



232 



869 APPENDIX D 

870 RISK MANAGEMENT 

871 A. Implementation 

872 Salem Presbytery urges all of its churches and related entities to establish 

873 policies, procedures, and practices related to sexual misconduct. Sessions and 

874 entities are to take appropriate steps to inform member, employees, volunteers, 

875 and students of the standards of conduct and the procedures for effective 

876 response when receiving a report of sexual misconduct. Presbytery, sessions, and 

877 entities are reminded of their duty to cooperate with secular authorities in the 

878 investigation and prosecution of violations of law. 

879 In part the structures and procedures for responding to allegations of sexual 

880 misconduct are mandated by the Book of Order, such as the roles of the Committee 

881 on Ministry and the Special Disciplinary Committee (see G-11.0502 and D-7.0800). 

882 When child sexual abuse or other misconduct that violates criminal laws is 

883 alleged, the secular authorities will immediately take control of the 

884 investigation and disposition of charges against the accused. Governing bodies 

885 and entities must cooperate with secular authorities in any secular investigation 

886 of sexual misconduct. The governing body or entity has a duty to make its 

887 inquiry and enforce disciplinary procedures if warranted when it can be done 

888 without interfering with the secular authority or in cases when civil authorities 

889 have dropped action in the case. 

890 Response to complaints of sexual misconduct in the course of employment will 

891 be governed by the governing body's or entity's existing personnel policy. The 

892 same allegations may also result in charges filed against a church member or 

893 minister under the Rules of Discipline , and may lead to temporary or permanent 

894 removal from membership or office. 

895 Implementation of this policy will encourage Salem Presbytery, sessions, and 

896 their entities to adopt educational programs to prevent sexual misconduct and to 

897 provide training in pastoral and disciplinary procedures. 

898 B. Liability and Insurance 

899 Salem Presbytery, sessions, and their entities can be held liable for harm 

900 caused by sexual misconduct of a minister or employee based on a number of legal 

901 theories such as negligent hiring and supervision. Salem Presbytery, sessions, 

902 and their entities must take such potential liability into consideration when 

903 establishing hiring and supervisory practices. 

904 Salem Presbytery, sessions, and their entities should regularly inform their 

905 liability insurance carriers of the activities and programs they operate or 

906 sponsor and of the duties and responsibilities of officers, employees, and 

907 volunteers. The standard insurance policy must be enhanced by endorsements to 

908 cover specific exposures such as camps, day-care operations, shelters, or other 

909 outreach programs. 

910 It is also recommended that Salem Presbytery, sessions, and their entities 

911 obtain an endorsement to their general liability insurance policy specifically 

912 covering sexual abuse and molestation. Such coverage may provide for legal 

913 defense expenses and judgements in civil suits brought against the organization, 

914 it3 officers, directors, or employees. 

915 C. Employment Practices 

916 1. Record Keeping 

917 Accurate record keeping is an essential part of hiring and supervision 

918 practices. Every governing body and entity should maintain a personnel file 



233 



ip on every employee including ministers. The file should contain the 

f application for employment, any employment questionnaires, references, 
responses, and other documents related to this policy. 

22 2. Prescreening Applicants 

23 Governing bodies and entities are urged to establish stringent hiring 

24 practices. If an applicant is unknown to the employer, the employer should 

25 confirm the applicant's identity by requiring photographic identification 

26 such as a driver's license. 

27 Part of pre-employment screening should include specific questions 

28 related to discovering previous complaints of sexual misconduct. Governing 

29 bodies and entities should ask persons seeking ministerial calls or 

30 employment in non-ordained positions questions such as: 

31 a. Have you ever resigned or been terminated from a position for 

32 reasons relating to allegations of sexual misconduct by you? 

33 b. If so, indicate the date, nature and place of these allegations, and 

34 the name, address, and telephone number of your employer at that time. 

35 c. Have you been required to receive professional treatment, physical 

36 or psychological, for reasons related to sexual misconduct to you? 

37 d. If so, please give a short description of the treatment including 

38 the date, nature or treatment, place and name, address and telephone 

39 number of the treating physician or other professional. 

40 A sample employment questionnaire is attached as Exhibit A for 

41 adaptation by governing bodies and entities. The questions included in this 
A * sample may be integrated into a standard employment questionnaire along with 

mk other necessary questions. 

44 3. References 

45 Salem Presbytery, sessions or their entities are responsible for 

46 contactinq references for prospective ministers, employees, or volunteers. 

47 A written record of conversations or correspondence with references should 

48 be kept in the minister's/employee's personnel file. (See Exhibit B for a 

49 sample reference form. ) 

50 In dealinq with ministers when transferring from one position to another 

51 in the matter of sexual misconduct clearance, the governing body could 

52 * assume responsibility for previous employer reference checks through the 

53 synod executive, executive presbyter, or to the authorized persons who would 

54 report to the Committee on Ministry or Committee on Preparation for Ministry 

55 either that there had been no reported sexual misconduct or that the 

56 committee should inquire into reported sexual misconduct. 

57 The person within the governing body or entity authorized to give a 

58 reference is obligated to give truthful information regarding allegations, 

59 inquiries, and administrative or disciplinary action related to sexual 

60 misconduct of the applicant. 

61 Applicants should be informed of negative comments regarding sexual 

62 misconduct and shall be given an opportunity to submit additional references 

63 or to give other evidence to correct or respond to harmful information 

64 obtained from a reference. 

65 0. Distribution 

Copies of this policy and its procedures shall be distributed to all 
m governing body and entity offices and shall be distributed to all employees and 
volunteers, and be available to all church members - It is intended for use by 
69 church members, church officers, employees, and volunteers. This policy and its 



234 



970 procedures shall be made available to persons who accuse others of misconduct, 

971 including those who are or claim to be victims of sexual misconduct and their 

972 families . This policy and its procedures will be available to those serving on . 

973 Special Disciplinary Committees , Committees on Ministry, Co mmit tees on 

974 Preparation for Ministry, and Response Coordination Teams. 

975 Upon receipt of this policy and its procedures, personnel in high-risk 

976 occupations must sign a written acknowledgement of receipt (Exhibit C) . This 

977 acknowledgement shall be kept in the person's personnel file. 

978 E. Volunteers 

979 While these guidelines are intended for volunteers, no requirement for 

980 screening and applications is usually applied. The increase of litigation 

981 requires that local churches do a better job of screening and supervising unpaid 

982 volunteers. If the volunteer is new or unknown to your church, some information 

983 checking may be wise before allowing him/her to work in high-risk positions such 

984 as youth advisor, children's workers, lay counselor, boy or girl scout, or camp 

985 counselors. 



235

APPENDIX 6 



RECEIVING MINISTERS PROM OTHER DENOMINATIONS 

1. The COM or a subcommittee of COM shall meet with a minister from another 
denomination interested in becoming a PCUSA minister to discover the extent 
of their PCUSA experience and the reasons why that person wants to change 
denominations. If the experience and reasons are acceptable, it shall be 
determined whether the denomination is in correspondence with the PCDSA. If 
not, then proceed with #2. If so, proceed with #3. Upon receiving request 
from the minister to be received as a member of Salem Presbytery, a 
peer/mentor relationship shall be established by the COM. 

2. An inquiry should be placed in the care of the Committee on Preparation For 
Ministry for appropriate testing, study and experience before COPM 
recommends to COM that the person is ready for a call. Such testing 
includes: 

a. Evidence of a baccalaureate degree or its equivalent from an accredited 
college or university and a theological degree from an institution 
requiring not less than 3 years residence. COPM reserves the right to 
conduct their own inquiry to deem acceptable the institution from which 
the theological degree was earned. 

b. Evidence of having successfully taken the standard ordination 
examinations of the PCUSA. 

c. Receive from prior denomination, or ordaining body, a record of 
ordination in good standing. 

3. Receive from prior denomination a record of ordination in good standing. 
Ordinarily, a record of successful completion of the ordination exams is 
required. Exceptions may be made for particular expertise in one or more 
areas covered by the ordination exams. 

4. All ministers from other denominations shall get permission from the COM in 
order to circulate his/her PIF among churches in Salem Presbytery. 

5. The COM, with the Examinations Committee, shall examine the minister in 
order to discover awareness of racial and gender diversity. 

6. With the Examinations Committee, the COM shall examine the minister on 
Christian faith and on views in theology, the authority of scripture, the 
sacraments and the system of government, and the Program and Mission of the 
Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.). 

7. The COM shall approve the call and recommend that Presbytery approve the 
call as a call to a validated ministry. 

8. Receive dismissal from the judicatory of membership, removal from rolls of 
former denominations and hear minister's willingness to give up all claims 
to ministry in that denomination. Be satisfied that the minister stands 
ready to affirm the ordination vows required of all ministers of the PCUSA. 

9. Recommend that Presbytery recognize the minister's previous ordination to 
the office of minister upon the expression of the minister's acceptance of 
the obligation of the ordination vows required of a minister the BO, and 
upon accepting the obligation of the ordination vows that the minister be 
enrolled as a member of Presbytery. 

10. Recommend that Presbytery appoint a commission to conduct a service of 
installation or recognition. 



245 



Unusual cases: 

There may be exceptions to the above policy that lead the COM to believe that 
it is appropriate to recommend a minister from another denomination be received 
immediately for specific work. In that case it would be appropriate to use the 
extraordinary clause, thereby calling attention to the presbytery that this is 
an unusual procedure to be approved with extra care. 



246 



APPENDIX H 

POLICY STATEMENT 
SALEM PRESBYTERY 



AFFIRMATIVE ACTION EQUAL EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITY POLICY FOR CALLING PASTORS WITHIN 
SALEM PRESBYTERY 



There is no longer Jew or Greek, there is no longer slave or free, there is no 
longer male and female; for all of you are one in Christ Jesus." (Gal. 3:28) 

As a fundamental policy and for the integrity of its witness to our Lord Jesus 
Christ, Salem Presbytery agrees to furnish to every qualified person and to all 
persons who may become qualified for employment, equal and just consideration. 
We agree to act in such fashion that the principles articulated in the Book of 
Order of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), and particularly in G-11.0502, G- 
4.0400 and G-13.0201, may be realized in the process by which pastors are called 
to serve within our jurisdiction. We agree that in each procedure for the 
filling of any pastoral position, no one, either negligently or deliberately, 
will be excluded from consideration because of their race, ethnic origin, sex, 
age, marital status, or disabilities. 

The Presbytery directs its Committee on Ministry to urge each congregation and 
employing agency within its jurisdiction to earnestly and fairly consider all 
candidates. While we respect the Principles of the Constitution and acknowledge 
that no congregation or employing agency shall be forced to accept leadership 
which it has not voted to accept (G-1.0306), we urge that possible candidates 
include women and those who belong to Racial/Ethnic categories other than the 
majority of the congregation. 



MODERATORS 

The Presbytery instructs the Committee on Ministry to advocate the use of women 
and Racial/Ethnic clergy to serve as the moderators and/or stated supplies when 
churches have no installed pastor. 



PULPIT SUPPLIES 

The Committee on Ministry shall urge Sessions to invite women and Racial/Ethnic 
persons to serve as interim and temporary supplies; to lead worship frequently; 
and to preach when their church has no installed pastor; and shall provide names 
of such as are available to serve. 



CONSULTATION WITH SESSIONS 

This Policy will be discussed with each session whenever their congregation is 
without an installed pastor or Presbytery appointed supply pastor and their 
response will be recorded in their minutes. Notice of the discussion and content 
of the response shall be forwarded to the Presbytery's Committee on Ministry. 



CHURCH INFORMATION FORM AND CONSULTATION WITH PASTOR NOMINATING COMMITTEES 

Discussion of the policy shall be a part of the training of each PNC. The 
Committee on Ministry shall carefully note the responses regarding Equal 
Employment Opportunity on the Church Information Form or within the Position 
Description. If the responses appear incompatible with this policy, the 
Committee on Ministry shall require a further consultation between its 
representative and the Pastor Nominating Committee with regard to this matter. 



247 



The chairperson of the Pastor Nominating Committee shall attest that the 
consultation has occurred to the Chairperson of the Committee on Ministry. Only 
upon approval of the Committee on Ministry shall the Church Information Form be 
forwarded to the Church Vocations Ministry Unit. 



CLEARANCE 

The Committee on Ministry shall satisfy itself that each particular Pastor 
Nominating Committee has seriously and fairly considered all candidates and that 
none have been excluded from consideration because of disregard for this policy. 



PRESBYTERY ACTION 

The Committee on Ministry shall report to the Presbytery in relation to each 
particular call that the constitutional requirements, specifically those cited 
in this policy statement, have been fulfilled by the calling agency and the 
pastor Nominating Committee before presbytery concurs with that call. 



PRESBYTERY RECORD 

The Stated Clerk of the Presbytery shall record in the Minutes of the presbytery 
that the procedures described in this policy has occurred.

INTERNATIONAL MISSIONS COMMITTEE 
Robert Pittard, Moderator 

Bob Yoder made the report for the Committee. 

Richard Miller reported briefly on the Mwandi II Project (the Mwandi 
Teaching/Learning Center ) . 



Hsinchu (Taiwan) Visit Postponed to 1994 ; 

The planned visit by representatives from Hsinchu Presbytery in August has 
been postponed to 1994. Without the continuity provided by an ongoing Presbytery 
staff, planning for a trip of this magnitude is much more difficult for them 
(their elected moderator, etc. also serves as the Presbytery staff) . 

To overcome this continuity problem, Hsinchu has elected an Associate 
Moderator, Rev. Chen, who has been assigned responsibility for the partnership 
with Salem. Rev. Chen will become the Moderator in 1994, overcoming the 
continuity problem. 

The International Mission Committee has invited Rev. Chen to Salem 
Presbytery to finalize planning for the 1994 visit. We anticipate that Rev. Chen 
will join us in January during Salem Presbytery's International Mission 
Conference. 

Bote-Tshiek Tshipamba-Kasoncra to Itinerate 

Mr. Bote-Tshiek came to the U.S. from Zaire in November of '92 for the 
purpose of interpreting the situation in Zaire to the American People and seeking 
the support of the U. S. Government for Prime minister Tshisekedi and his 
democratic Government. As a result of his outspoken condemnation of Mobutu Sese 
Seko, Mr. Bote-Tshiek would be in grave danger if he were to return to Zaire. 

While two (2) of Mr. Bote-Tshiek' s children are with him in the U. S., his 
wife and other children remain in some danger in Zaire. This situation is 
currently being handled by Refugee Resettlement through the PC(U.S.A. ) in 
Louisville. 

The Presbytery of Eastern Virginia has called Mr. Bote-Tshiek to their 
service for the next 12 months; his role will be to continue sharing the faith 
and to educate the American church on the situation in Zaire. 

The Salem Presbytery International Mission Committee has elected to actively 
itinerate Mr. Bote-Tshiek through the Presbytery during the coming year while he 
is serving Eastern Virginia. 

1994 International Mission Conference Set 

The date for International Mission Conference has been set for Saturday, 
January 22, 1994, with Tommy Brown as the keynote speaker. Remaining workshops 
and leaders are being finalized at this time... so, mark calendars and be on the 
lookout for more information.

BUDGET AND FINANCE COMMITTEE 
John Milholland, Moderator 

The Budget and Finance Committee is pleased to report that through a combination 
of increased giving by some of the churches in Salem Presbytery and through 
reduced spending by some of the committees of Salem Presbytery, it appears now 
that we will end the fiscal year of 1993 with our expenditures not exceeding our 
revenues. 

We have received our audited financial statement for December, 31, 1992 from the 
accounting firm of Witherington, Wells, Moose and Martin, P. A., Certified Public 
Accountants. Again this year, we have received a clean report. It may be of 
interest to note that the fund balances have remained constant from 1991 to 1992. 

Funds are available for limited student loans through the Mary Smith Loan Fund, 
an endowment fund invested through the Presbyterian Foundation. Though the donor 
stipulated that these loans be approved by the Candidates Committee, 
administration of same is lodged with the Budget and Finance Committee. 

At the request of Council and the action of the July meeting of Presbytery, we 
have explored the matter of Partnership Funding through the Synod of the Mid- 
Atlantic. 

Basic to understanding partnership funds is the recognition that this is a 
process for redistributing money within the denomination from the more affluent 
synods and presbyteries to those who need help to support mission and ministry 
within their own area or region. Years ago, in the history of the UP stream, 
some of that was done through the General Assembly's Board of National Missions, 
which supported both aided fields and some governing bodies. In time, especially 
after the disappearance of that Board with re-organization, the Council on 
Administrative Services took on the function of providing, initially, for support 
of staff in governing bodies that could not afford needed staff. Later those 
funds were used to support program and dependent congregations. Eventually, 
funds were provided to support both staff and program. 

Though the PCUS style of providing for mutual support was quite different, 
focusing as it did on the presbyteries, partnership funds were carried over into 
the new denomination at reunion. Several of the UP synods and presbyteries, 
including the Mid-Atlantic and its presbyteries, were quite dependent upon this 
process for redistributing funds. 

More recently, some synods and presbyteries have opted out of the General 
Assembly's partnership funds program and negotiated that withdrawal in "revenue 
neutral" terms, so that neither presbytery, synod nor General Assembly get hurt 
in the process. That is, basically, to come to agreement on reducing gifts and 
support to General Assembly in proportion to partnership funds no longer received 
under the adopted plan. $257,000 had been received by the Synod of the Mid- 
Atlantic from the General Assembly . Salem Presbytery's per capita share of that 
amount is $28,879. 



ACTIONS : 

4. The audited financial statements for the year ended 1992 were 
approved (see Appendix E, pp. 295-309). 

5. The student loan rate for the Mary Smith Loan Fund was set at 6% 
with 36 monthly payments beginning immediately. 

6. Presbytery approved the new percentage distribution of benevolence 
funds for 1994: Presbytery 57.6%; Synod 16.98%; General Assembly 
25.42%. 



259 



PEACEMAKING COMMITTEE 
Gray Clark, Moderator 

Mr. Clark reported the many facets of the Committee's work (see Appendix F, pp. 
310-311) . 



EDNA RIMMER 

John Handley recognized the presence of Edna Rimmer who served the Presbytery of 
Concord for many years. 



HUNGER COMMITTEE 
Charles Cameron, Moderator 

George Carpenter made the report for the Committee. 

At the July meeting of Presbytery, Charles and Marion Cameron, elders in the 
Pittsboro Church, were commissioned as Volunteers in Mission to go to Tease, 
Ghana, for three months to be consultants in the Agricultural Program in the 
Afram Plains. Part of the Pennies for Hunger/Two Cents a Meal money helps fund 
this mission. Below are excerpts from their letters keeping us up-to-date on 
what's happening: 

The Following is from Charles ; 

The second corn crop has been planted, peanuts harvested and the first corn crop 
is being harvested and now drying on a concrete floor in the shop building. If 
all goes well, we may get a taste of it by the last week or so of our stay. 

A small irrigation system that I had brought along has been installed in a garden 
spot close to our residence. It is a simple plastic trickle irrigation system 
using a four gallon pail for holding water. It should be filled morning and 
evening. We shall see how red beets, Swiss chard, carrots and beans do with this 
system. We also have non- irrigated areas with watermelon, squash, tomatoes, 
peppers and eggplant. When we were here 25 years ago, fresh vegetables were not 
very common in the markets in Accra. Now they are more plentiful and not too 
expensive. 

(Sept. 2-4) We returned from a quick trip to Accra, which is 170 miles one-way, 
plus a lake crossing. We bought a nice head of cabbage, 1 1/2 pounds of green 
beans and some carrots. None of these are available in Tease or within 70 miles 
of us 1 . . . 

...The uncertainty of the ferry schedule is a real drawback for Marian. Last 
Friday (August 27th) when I was returning to Tease from Synod (Marian stayed in 
Tease), the ferry was down and not expected to be repaired until the next day 
(28th) . I elected to cross by outboard motorboat with my bag plus food purchases 
(bread, canned goods, fresh pineapple and fresh vegetables). Our driver Kojo 
crossed with me and secured a seat on a taxi going to Tease. (I paid double so 
I could occupy the front seat alone i ) Normal is four in back plus two in front 
with driver. Kojo then crossed back to be with the truck to await the ferry's 
resumption of service the next day. My journey continued 13/4 hours to home in 
Tease. Marian was happy to see me and I was happy to be homel Taxi fare was 
1800 cents (Cedes) which equals $2.50. 

Michael, acting manager of project, will be leaving for Accra later today to do 
some banking and one of the workers who has been trained in poultry will 
accompany him to get 100 layer chicks to start the poultry project we planned 
last year. The poultry house has been completed and ready for the new chicks. 
I suspect that this may be the first such venture in Tease and maybe in the 
entire Afram Plains. There are chickens running loose in about all the villages, 
but not many are of market quality. Eggs are enjoyed by Ghanaians, sold on the 
streets of most towns as hard cooked eggs. Chicken meat is a special treat and 



260 



usually reserved for special guests. I have been served meat from the full 
ranging chickens and it should have been boiled for another hour or twol The 
stew it was put in was made of tomatoes, onion, palm nut oil and hot peppers. 
Marian's "Gari" project now has the grater and engine and is about to begin 
production. I feel positive about the projects' progress. 



The following is from Marian ; 

I have mentioned in previous letters the flour that the women in Abetifi gave me. 
It is called Weaning Mix and is given at the clinic to mothers who are weaning 
their babies. It is imported from Germany, but the women have learned how to 
produce it. The women in Abetifi told me that by using two parts water to one 
part flour and adding sauted onions and a red pepper it makes a good adult food. 
Mercy and I have been making it, and we have fed it to the workers, the local 
committee, the Gari Project women, and the Presbyterian Women's Fellowship; all 
have found it very good and said they would eat it. When we fed it to the 
committee, there were those who did not take any, but when the others said how 
good it was, they also took and pronounced it good. 

. . .As I told them (the Women's Fellowship) about the Weaning Mix and gave them 
less that $5 to buy the ingredients to make a good supply of it. I told them to 
cook up some of it and see how they could use it. This morning they came to see 
me and thank me for the starting money. They cooked it and the women were to 
take samples home for their families to taste, but some of them thought it was 
so good, they ate it all. The pastor's wife told them that they should cook it 
up at night and when they went to their farms the next day, take some of that and 
a little water and that would be all they needed. This will make a wonderful 
convenience for the women. 

Charles and Marian will return home November 15 and will be available to speak 
to church groups after the first of the year (we must give them time to get a 
little rest and to process their picturesl). They will be eager to come — to 
preach the sermon on Sunday morning, talk to a Sunday School Class, to present 
a program at family night dinners, or to speak to whatever groups wish to hear 
them. As churches who heard them speak after their sojourn in Ghana last year 
can confirm, this is an excellent mission presentation.

Presbyter and Stated Clerk, was held on July 27, 1993. 



261 



Reverend Handley, in an informal discussion, gave his self-appraisal and a report 
of the activities he has conducted and participated in during the year. 

The Personnel Committee concluded that the Executive Presbyter is a fine human 
being, a caring and loving person. He has an excellent understanding of the 
Church and is in tune with the pulse of the Church. He is sensitive to the needs 
of people, ministers, and the congregations.

the past year, and a prayer of thanksgiving and intercession was 
offered for him asking God's continued blessings on his work. 



The Personnel Committee met on September 28, 1993, to conduct the annual 
performance review of Ms. Willie D. Garvin, Presbytery Associate for Business 
Affairs/Treasurer, for Salem Presbytery. 

The review revealed that Ms. Garvin has a strong Christian attitude, which is 
exemplified in her work with people. She possesses a high level of skill, 
experience, and leadership ability which qualifies her for her position. She is 
highly committed to her work, which motivates her to strive for excellence. 

Ms. Garvin's attitude and interpersonal skills allows her to work effectively 
with others. She is responsive to the changing demands of the job as it relates 
to additional assignments as resource person to other committees. Ms. Garvin is 
viewed as a valuable resource throughout the Presbytery and Synod. The 
Presbytery is fortunate to have her in the position. 



RECOMMENDATION : 

8. Salem Presbytery commended Ms. Willie D. Garvin for her performance 
over the past year and a prayer of thanksgiving and intercession was

263 



b. Her credo which follows, was approved: 



I believe in God, which means I am committed to God with my 
heart, mind and soul. I do not have merely an opinion about 
God, nor do I only give intellectual assent to a set of 
doctrines. I set my heart on God. 

God has revealed God's self as the one who creates, who 
speaks, who has a sense of order and beauty. I have committed 
my life to stewardship of God's creation, conversation with 
God's word, and conservation of God's order and beauty. 

As a human I am subject to sin and fall short of God's 
glory. The spirit of the serpent of Eden is alive and well and 
living in my neighborhood. I confess that given the choice 
which God gives each person, between the gracious gift of being 
made in God's image and accepting the privileges and 
responsibilities that go along with that gift or trying to 
achieve spiritual goals through what one possesses or achieves; 
I do not always choose what God would prefer: the gracious gift 
of being made in God's image. 

Jesus Christ uniquely bears that image. This is confirmed 
when at his baptism God's voice identifies Jesus as God's own 
son, beloved, with whom God is pleased. Through Christ, in the 
sacrament of baptism, our identity as children of God is 
affirmed. 

I believe, that baptized in Christ, we die to sin. Yet we 
are still challenged to demonstrate a quality of life that 
reveals God's image in us. Jesus learned what it meant to be a 
bearer of the image of God. "Although he was a Son (of God), he 
learned obedience through what he suffered" (Hebrews 5:8). The 
purpose of this "education" is clear: "Because he himself was 
tested by what he suffered, he is able to help those who are 
being tested" (Hebrews 2:18). 

I believe that God is with us always. When Jesus went to 
be with God, he sent the Holy Spirit, the comforter and 
sustainer. In God's presence, with Jesus' help and the guidance 
of the Holy Spirit we dare hope. I believe that faith is dynamic 
and propels us to action. I believe in God who compels us to 
"love with irresistible force" (Van Gogh) . 

c. Presbytery approved the establishment of an Associate Pastoral 
relationship between Ms. Cameron and the First Presbyterian 
Church of Greensboro effective October 18, 1993; approved the 
following Terms of Call; and the Call was placed in her hands. 



d. The following Commission was approved to install her on December

e. Ms. Cameron was instructed to sign the obligations required of 
a minister to be enrolled in presbytery. 



11. Presbytery approved the committee and floor examination of the 
Reverend J. Randy Hall in accordance with Book of Order G-11.0402. 
Mr. Hall wishes to change from the Southern Baptist Denomination to 
become PCUSA and serve in Salem Presbytery. 

a. Upon his answering the constitutional questions required of 
ministers transferring from another denomination (G-14.0508), 
the Presbytery recognized the previous ordination to the office 
of ministry of The Reverend Randy Hall, of the Southern Baptist 
Denomination, approved him to become a Minister of Word and 
Sacrament in the PCUSA and to serve as Pastor (3/4 time) for 
Fairmont Presbyterian Church in Lexington. The effective date 
is November 1, 1993. 

b. His credo which follows, was approved: 



Before the world of matter, space, and time, God was. At 
God ' s command the heavenly bodies and the space in which they 
reside were formed. God chose to create an ecosystem on earth 
capable of sustaining animals and humans. God created humans in 
God's own image, distinguishing us from all other life and 
giving us responsibility over the creation. God pronounced this 
"very good". God is Creator. 

The Old Testament is the theological history of God's 
dealings and relationships with those chosen to carry God's 
blessings to the world. It is the story of humankind's struggle 
with sin - pride, self-centeredness, independence, and self- 
destruction. It is also the story of a God whose love, justice, 
mercy, anger, grace, and compassion have consistently sought out 
those who have strayed. 

The New Testament is the story of God's great act of 
redemption in Jesus Christ. The Word became flesh - flesh that 
would experience the full range of emotions and temptations 
which we encounter - flesh that would not give in to those 
temptations, but completely surrender to God's will - flesh that 
would feel the whip, the fists, and the nails - flesh that would 
become gray and bloodless - flesh that would live again on that 
great resurrection momingl Jesus, by God's grace, is my Savior 
and Lord. Thanks be to God. 

The Church is the Body of Christ and we, by grace and 
through faith, are members of it. Christ is the Head of the 
Church. All that we say and do as the Church must focus on that 
one reality. Christ gave and gives us the Holy Spirit to gift 
us and empower us to serve God through our worship and our 
service. The function of the Minister of the Word and Sacrament 
is to equip the saints for the work of the ministry. 

Through the Ministry of the Word we are reminded of the 
story of our salvation and we seek to understand God's ongoing, 
dynamic relationship with us. The Word challenges us to be 
reconciled and to be reconcilers. Through the Sacraments we

receive God's grace and celebrate that love which seeks us out. 
Through the Sacraments we are renewed and celebrate our 
communion with God and all the saints. 

I affirm and embrace the practice and polity of the 
Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) and its part in the Reformed and 
reforming church. I affirm the historic creeds and confessions 
of the church as wonderful statements of our faith-fathers and 
faith-mothers in their search to understand our God. One of our 
challenges is to continue their faith journey toward what it 
means to be the community of faith and the faithful community, 
until that day when we "no longer see as in a mirror dimly, but 
face to face." May God grant us all the courage to see the 
journey through.

RECEPTION OF GAIL PORTER NELSON 

ACTION: 

3. Presbytery approved the committee and floor examination of the 
Reverend Gail Porter Nelson in accordance with Book of Order G- 
11.0402. 

a. The Reverend Gail Porter Nelson was received from Coastal 
Carolina Presbytery effective August 1, 1993, to serve as Campus 
Pastor at Winston Salem State University. She was authorized to 
serve communion. This is a cooperative, ecumenical position and 
was approved as a validated call. Her terms of call are on 
file. 



266 



b. Her credo which follows, was approved: 

I believe that all that is, was and is to be is the 
creation of the one true and living God. 

I believe that there is one God that is represented in 
three persons God as Father, God as Son and God as Holy Spirit. 

I believe that God is working out a plan of redemption for 
a fallen creation, and that this plan is based upon the life and 
work of Jesus Christ who came to the earth and dwelled among 
humankind. Jesus Christ represented God incarnate, fully God 
and fully human. The power of sin is death and by the 
resurrection from the dead through Jesus Christ the power of sin 
was broken. This historical fact of faith is the central issue 
in the Christian faith as we focus on the cross as the basis of 
God's redemptive plan. Through the life, death resurrection and 
ascension of Jesus Christ total salvation was made available to 
humankind if we would repent of our sins, seek a new 
relationship with Jesus Christ which is symbolic through the 
Sacrament of Baptism and rely on grace that is extended through 
the love manifested through Jesus Christ on the cross. I am 
reminded of the Grace of God each time I partake in the 
Sacrament of Holy Communion. It symbolizes for me the atoning 
death and redemptive suffering that offers me the opportunity to 
serve as a Minister of Word and Sacrament and the partnership we 
share with Christ through the church as reflected in our 
obedience to the will of God and the authority of Christ as the 
head of the church. Therefore, as a believer in the sustaining 
grace and redemptive love of our Lord God through Jesus Christ, 
I seek the assurance of salvation offered to those who believe 
and confess that Jesus Christ is Lord. 

I believe that it is only by the grace of God that anyone 
is saved and that the Lord God is infinite in love which offers 
even the least worthy among us to be made acceptable in the 
sight of the Lord. The expectation that God places before us is 
to seek Gods wisdom and execute love, righteousness/ justice to 
all of humankind as witnesses to the redemptive love we have 
discovered through the cross on which our Savior died. It is 
imperative that we offer our lives as faithful stewards of God's 
earth and resources, so that we reflect the richness of God's 
trust in us as caretakers of God's possessions. 

I believe the scriptures as the authoritative Word of God 
for guidance, faith and practice. The church represents the 
body of believers in Jesus Christ and is called to follow the 
truth recorded in biblical scripture. Because the church is the 
host for imperfect people, it is an imperfect institution and we 
are called to constantly study its attempts to affirm Christ in 
the world. This is done through prayer and the acknowledgment 
of the Holy Spirit in each person that calls upon the name of 
Jesus Christ. We are therefore called to the task of evangelism 
as an essential witness to our belief and the extending of the 
diversity of Christ body. To this end, we labor among the lost, 
the doubting, the sick, the lame, the college student, the young 
and old and all whom we call neighbor. God intends neighbor to 
represent anyone the Holy Spirit places in our presence. I seek 
to be your neighbor today. 

c. Ms. Nelson was instructed to sign the obligations required of a 
minister to be enrolled in Presbytery.

RECEPTION OF DONALD G. SCOFIELD, JR. 



ACTION: 

4. That Presbytery approved the committee and floor examination of the 
Reverend Donald G. Scofield, Jr. in accordance with Book of Order G- 
11.0402. 

a. Upon his answering the constitutional questions required of 
ministers transferring from another denomination (G-14.0508), 
the Presbytery recognized the previous ordination to the office 
of ministry of The Reverend Donald G. Scofield, Jr., of the 
American Baptist Denomination, approved him to become a Minister 
of Word and Sacrament in the PCUSA and to serve as Pastor (1/2 
time) for Flat Rock Presbyterian Church in Mt. Airy. 

b. His credo which follows, was approved: 

In carefully examining my faith, a faith which has been 
challenged and encouraged to grow over the years by my 
relationship with the Lord and fellow believers, I can affirm 
the following: 

I believe in God, the eternal Creator and Sustainer of the 
universe. Infinite in power, wisdom, and holiness, our Lord 
stands above creation as ruler and judge. And yet, through a 
love which is perfect and unlimited, God reaches out to all of 
humanity through Jesus Christ. In Christ, we are reconciled to 
the Lord and one another and find God truly desires our 
fellowship and seeks to meet us where we are reconciled to the 
Lord and one another and find God truly desires our fellowship 
and seeks to meet us where we are in life. 

I believe in Jesus Christ, the only Son of God. It was 
God's love for humanity that sent Jesus Christ to earth to live 
among us, to die, and after three days rise from the dead in 
order that we might have eternal life. In accepting Jesus 
Christ, we receive forgiveness for our sins and experience the 
reconciliation which leads to eternal life. Anyone who accepts 
Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior receives the gift eternal 
life. Those who choose to follow Christ are truly "set free" in 
this life and can experience a level of joy and peace which go 
far beyond the expectations of this world. 

I believe in the Holy Spirit who is sent into this world by 
God to convict, comfort, inspire, and strengthen those who 
accept Jesus Christ and seek to accomplish God's will. The Holy 
Spirit inspired the writers of the Scriptures in order that 
God's word might be communicated to us. This process of 
inspiration continues to this day as the Holy Spirit guides and 
enlightens us in our interpretation of God's Word. 

I believe that the Bible is the authoritative Word of God. 
It is our infallible guide in matters of doctrine and faith. 
Through the continuing influence of the Holy Spirit, God's Word 
convicts, educates and inspires us to live as witnesses to and 
faithful followers of Jesus Christ. 

I believe the Church to be the Body of Christ and the 
Presbyterian Church USA to be part of that Body. As the Body of 
Christ, the Church witnesses to Jesus Christ through its 
proclamation and action. In Baptism and the Lord's Supper, the 
Church points to God's grace and its continuing covenant 
relationship with the Almighty. 

I am, first and foremost, a servant of Jesus Christ. I 
count as my brothers and sisters all who proclaim Christ and 
seek to serve Him. And I will work energetically and 
cooperatively with fellow believers throughout the Christian 
Church to serve the Lord in whatever ways I am led by the 
Spirit .

RECEPTION OF JOHN A. WILKERSON, JR. 



ACTION: 



12. Presbytery approved the committee and floor examination of the 
Reverend John A. Wilkerson, Jr. in accordance with Book of Order G- 
11.0402. 

a. The Reverend John Wilkerson, interim pastor at Parkway 
Presbyterian Church was approved to transfer from Middle 
Tennessee Presbytery to Salem Presbytery effective August 1, 
1993. 



b. His credo which follows, was approved: 

Basically, my theology is incarnational and relational. I 
believe in one God who is sovereign Creator, Judge, Redeemer, 
and Sustainer of the universe. In Jesus Christ, God has been 
revealed most supremely and personally. In Christ, both God and 
humanity are perfectly reconciled. In Christ, God has revealed 
for all time that kind of relationship which God seeks with all 
humanity and which is established upon divine justice, mercy, 
righteousness, love and peace. 

I believe that humanity has not the innate ability to 
effect the kind of relationship with God which God desires. 
Individually and collectively, humanity is, more or less, 
estranged from God because of self-centeredness, which is the 
essence of sin. Human beings are imperfect, to say the least, 
and therefore, incapable of perfecting a relationship with God 



269 



and one another. It is purely by the mercy and grace of God, as 
well as by humanity's acknowledged dependence upon God's 
merciful grace, that humanity's estrangement from God is 
overcome and reconciliation is effected. 

Those who acknowledge their dependence upon God, under the 
authority of God's Son, Jesus Christ, who hear God calling them 
to a life of humble obedience, and who humbly submit themselves 
to such a life, constitute the Church Universal, which 
transcends time, space, nationality, race, color, sex, socio- 
economic status, and denomination. The Universal Church, I 
believe, is the Body of Christ which is commissioned to live and 
breathe and act out under the influence of the mind and heart of 
the Lord Jesus Christ. By God's grace, the Church is God's 
people, through whom God has chosen to continue to make known 
divine intent and purpose for the created order. It is through 
God's Church that God is still working to reconcile the world. 

As a Christian disciple and an ordained Minister of the 
Gospel, I am committed to that concept of the Church which is 
the universal Body of Christ. As an ordained Minister of the 
Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), I am committed to our Reformed 
heritage and to the Presbyterian form of church government. 

I believe that, by the ministry of the Holy Spirit, God has 
gifted the Church in a variety of ways "for the work of 
ministry" and "for building up the Body of Christ." 

c. Mr. Wilkerson was instructed to sign the obligations required of 
a minister to be enrolled in presbytery.

COMMITTEE ON REPRESENTATION 
Joe Spears, Moderator 

We have made strides in an effort to give full expression to the rich diversity 
within the Presbytery's membership and to provide a means to assure greater 
inclusion leading to wholeness in the emerging life of the Church. While there 
exist definite racist and prejudiced patterns and attitudes influencing our 
behavior, the ordering of the life of the Presbytery has included racial ethnics, 
different age groups, geographical representation, divergent positions within the 
reformed tradition, both sexes and marital conditions. 

It is the main function of this committee to advise Presbytery with respect to 
membership and representation of the committees, boards, and other units of 
implementation to assure the principles of participation and inclusiveness. 

Our tasks as advocate and resource has been made easy because of the nature and 
perspective of Salem's membership. It is not human nature that controls us but 
the nature of Christ. 

An analysis of the data titled, "Salem Presbytery Committee Volunteers" reveals: 

1. Salem Presbytery has 613 committee volunteers; 

2. 38.33% of these volunteers are female; 

3. 61.67% of these volunteers are male; 

4. 0.49% of these volunteers are Asian Americans; 

5. 13.4% of these volunteers are Black - African Americans; 

6. 1.1% of these volunteers had no listed race; and 

7. 0.27% of these volunteers was listed as "M" . 

On the basis of these data, it is the considered opinion of the Committee on 
Representation, that diversity and inclusiveness is assured within the bounds of 
Salem Presbytery. It should be noted that our paid staff and most committees 
meet the standard of preparation as set by Salem's (ca) 39,000 communicants, (ca) 

4000 Black/African Americans and (ca) 120 Asian Americans. (The Male/Female 
ratio is not available) . 

We do urge and call upon those committees that are not in full compliance at this 
time, to use the Committee on Representation as a resource to assist with a 
resolution. 



ACTIONS : 

39. Presbytery urged the Nominating Committee and those committees not 
meeting ethnic and gender representation standards intentionally 
take the concern under consideration and work toward a solution. 



281 



40. Any gathering of data relating to representation shall designate the 
following categories: 



. Clergy (Male/Female) 
. Laywoman 
. Layman 
. Youth 
. Race 

. Name of committee 
. Age

291 



APPENDIX D 



A COVENANT AGREEMENT 
BETWEEN 
SALEM PRESBYTERY 
AND 

GRANDFATHER HOME FOR CHILDREN 



I. PURPOSE 

This instrument is to clearly define the interaction of Salem Presbytery 
and Grandfather Home for Children, and to affirm their support of one 
another. This covenant does not include a commitment to financial support 
through this presbytery's budget, but such support is not ruled out. 

II. HISTORY 

Established through the ministry of the Reverend Edgar Tufts, Grandfather 
Home has been supported by local presbyteries even before it opened its 
doors in 1914. Margaret Tufts Neal, in her book, And Set Aglow a Sacred 
Flame , wrote that Grandfather Orphans ' Home was originally intended "to 
provide a home for mountain children with no parents or whose parents were 
unable to take care of them. " 

After caring for hundreds of children in need of basic sheltering, 
Grandfather Home for Children's ministry evolved to meet more spiritual, 
rather than tangible needs. For the past ten years, the ministry has 
specialized in working with children from all over North Carolina, who 
have been unable to live in families due to the effects of sexual abuse. 
Unconditional love and acceptance, as exemplified by Christ and Scripture 
are the foundation of this ministry. 

Throughout the years, Grandfather Home has been supported by the prayers 
and finances of Presbyterians as individuals, churches, and presbyteries. 
Since the ministry is to children within the geographic bounds of North 
Carolina, a synod relationship has neither been sought nor offered. 

III. GOVERNANCE 

Grandfather Home for Children is incorporated and governed by a Board of 
Trustees, consisting of Presbyterians representing four presbyteries: 
Salem, Charlotte, Western North Carolina, and Holston. 

IV. MISSION STATEMENT 

Grandfather Home is a private, church-related agency in Banner Elk, North 
Carolina, providing group care for school age children. Since 1914, 
Grandfather Home has cared for boys and girls unable to live with their 
families. 

Currently, our Christian staff work with children to resolve feelings 
stemming from past neglect, emotional and sexual abuse so that they can 
again live with a family. If a child cannot be reunited with the family 
of birth, an adoptive placement is the goal. Recognizing the critical 
importance of families, Grandfather Home provides family support services 
to ensure that families — both birth and adoptive — will remain together. 

Only with prayer and strong private financial support can we continue with 
our ministry. 



292 



V. RESPONSIBILITIES 



A. GRANDFATHER HOME FOR CHILDREN COMMITS TO PRESBTERY: 

1. To seek to fulfill the mission of the Church, to spread the good 
news of Christ's unconditional love and redemption, providing a 
vehicle for the Holy Spirit to heal broken lives. 



2. To minister primarily to children; also to congregations, 
communities, social workers, teachers, staff, parents, and other 
relatives of children in our care. 

3. To maintain standards of excellence in care, meeting requirements 
for licensure by the State of North Carolina, and accreditation by 
the Council on Accreditation of Services for Families and 
Children, Inc. 

4. To offer services to children and families within the geographic 
bounds of Salem Presbytery, without regard to race, sex, or 
religion. 

5. To provide speakers, resources, written information, and 
educational opportunities to individuals, churches, and presbytery 
groups . 

6. To make a sincere effort, in hiring and other policies, not to 
discriminate based on race, sex, age or other individual 
distinctions. It is, however, expected that staff will be

INDEPENDENT AUDITOR'S REPORT 



The Council of Salem Presbytery 
Clemmons , North Carolina 



We have audited the accompanying balance sheets of the General Fund, Restricted 
Fund, Loan and Grant Fund, Bicentennial Fund and Plant Fund of Salem Presbytery as 
of December 31, 1992, and the related statements of support, revenue, expenses and 
changes in fund balances and changes in financial position for the year then 
ended. These financial statements are the responsibility of the Presbytery's 
management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial 
statements based on our audit. We did not audit the financial statements of Camp 
Grier, Camp New Hope and Presbyterian Point, which represent 93% of the assets of 
the Plant Fund. Those financial statements were audited by other auditors whose 
reports thereon have been furnished to us, and our opinion, insofar as it relates 
to the amounts included for Camp Grier, Camp New Hope and Presbyterian Point, is 
based solely on the reports of the other auditors. 

We conducted our audit in accordance with generally accepted auditing standards. 
Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable 
assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material 
misstatement. An audit includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting 
the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. An audit also includes 
assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by 
management, as well as evaluating the overall financial statement presentation. 
We believe that our audit and the reports of other auditors provide a reasonable 
basis for our opinion. 

In our opinion, the financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all 
material respects, the financial position of Salem Presbytery as of December 31, 
1992, and the results of its operations and changes in its financial position for 
the year then ended in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles. 



297 



Our audit was made for the purpose of forming an opinion on the financial 
statements taken as a whole. The supplementary information contained on pages 15 
through 16 is presented for purposes of additional analysis and is not a required 
part of the financial statements. Such information has been subjected to the 
auditing procedures applied in our examination of the financial statements and, in 
our opinion, is fairly stated in all material respects in relation to the 
financial statements taken as a whole.

Salem Presbytery 
NOTES TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS 
December 31, 1992 



NOTE 1 - SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES 

il 

The significant accounting policies of Salem Presbytery (hereinafter referred 
to as the "Presbytery") are described below to enhance the usefulness of the 
financial statements to the reader. 

Fund accounting 

To ensure observance of limitations and restrictions placed on the use of 
resources available to the Presbytery, the accounts are maintained in accordance 
with the principles of fund accounting. This is a procedure by which resources 
are classified for accounting and reporting purposes into funds established 
according to their nature and purpose. 

ji 

The Presbytery's funds are as follows: 

l 

General Fund - this fund accounts for unrestricted resources that are 
available for the support and operation of the office of the Presbytery. 

Restricted Fund - this fund accounts for all Presbyterian mission collections 
and disbursements and various donor restricted gifts. 

Loan and Grant Fund - this fund accounts for resources restricted to use for 
loans and grants to churches and loans to individuals. 

I 

Bicentennial Fund - this fund accounts for resources restricted by churches 
and individuals to use for the Bicentennial Fund mission projects in 
partnership with the General Assembly and the Synod of the Mid-Atlantic. 

Plant Fund - this fund accounts for all property, plant and equipment owned 
by the Presbytery. 

Plant assets and depreciation 

Uses of general and other funds for plant acquisitions are accounted for as 
transfers to the Plant Fund. Proceeds from the sale of plant assets are 
transferred to the General Fund. Depreciation is provided over the estimated 
useful lives of the respective assets on a straight-line basis for the property, 
plant and equipment. 

The Presbytery also may hold title to various church properties located 
within its boundaries for canonical purposes only. These properties are not 
included in the Plant Fund.

NOTES TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS 
December 31, 1992 



NOTE 1 - SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (continued) 

Support and revenues 

Due to the voluntary nature of Presbyterian mission support received from 
member churches, support is recognized when received by the Presbytery, except for 
support received in the two weeks following the year end, which is recognized in 
the year intended by the member churches. 

Deferred support 

Pledges for the Bicentennial Fund are recorded as deferred revenue. Pledges 
are recognized as support in the statement of support, revenue, expenses and 
changes in fund balances when the pledges are collected; therefore, no allowance 
for uncollectible pledges is deemed necessary. 

Pension plan 

The Presbytery participates in a pension fund for the employees and ministers 
administered by the Board of Pensions of the Presbyterian Church (USA) . 
Eligibility is determined by age, length of service and salary base. The pension 
expense for 1992 was $16,824 for the employees, and $18,396 for the ministers. 

Comparative Total (Memorandum Only) 

The total data are presented to facilitate financial analysis. The totals do 
not present financial position, results of operations, or changes in cash flow in 
conformity with generally accepted accounting principles. No consolidating or 
other eliminations were made in arriving at the totals; thus, they do not 
represent consolidated information. 

Reclassifications 

Certain items in the accompanying financial statements for 1991 have been 
reclassified in order to conform with the 1992 financial statement presentation.

NOTE 7 - TRANSFERS FROM ANTECEDENT PRESBYTERIES 

Effective December 31, 1988, the boundaries of 10 North Carolina Presbyteries 
were realigned to establish 5 new Presbyteries. Early in 1989, a transitional 
period occurred to allow the conclusion of the work of the antecedent Presbyteries 
and divisions of the property, plant and equipment of each Presbytery. The 
transfers from antecedent Presbyteries are net of subsequent obligations that 
arose after the disposition of assets to Salem Presbytery from the Presbyteries of 
Concord, Yadkin and Orange. In 1991, Salem Presbytery received final distribution 
of the investments held by the Orange Presbytery Foundation. 

NOTE 8 - TAX EXEMPT STATUS 

The Presbytery is a nonprofit organization exempt under Internal Revenue Code 
Section 501(c)(3). It pays neither federal nor state income taxes on related 
income .

Salem Presbytery appendix p 

Peacemaking Committee Report 
Gray Clark, Moderator 
October 26, 1993 



The Work of the Peacemaking Committee 



A Reminder and a Challenge: 



Commitment to Peacemaking 

This is something your church 
can do for no cost at all. Simply have 
your Session review the "Commitment 
to Peacemaking" statement and vote to 
support its principles of peace. 

Why? Because it states to the 
congregation and the world that you 
are a congregation that is committed to 
issues of peace in your community and 
the world. (For copies, contact the 
Presbytery office, or Louisville.) 



We urge you to do it today! 



United Nations Trip 
to study 

Eastern Europe 

Cost: Less than$320 
When: November 11-13 
Why: To learn more about events 
that are happening in Eastern 
Europe (former Yugosiavia) 
What you get: Air Fair; Safe, 
Comfortable Lodging, a Meal at 
an Ethnic Restaurant, an 
opportunity to see New York City. 



Peacemaking Offering: Has 
your church taken an offering 
for Peacemaking this year? 

This offering is one that is used in 
many ways: 

1. Twenty-five percent stays in 
your congregation to help in ways that 
your Session determines. 

2. Twenty-five percent goes to 
Presbytery and synod. 

3. Fifty percent is used by the 
Presbyterian Peacemaking Program. 

Some churches have used the 
money for: child/spouse abuse centers, 
alcoholic rehabilitation, inter-racial 
activities, education to eliminate violence 
in schools, and a long list of other causes. 



People were bringing children to him in order that he might touch them; and the disciples 
spoke sternly to them. But when Jesus saw this, he was indignant and said to them, "Let 
the little children come to me; do not stop them; for it is to such as these that the kingdom 
of God belongs. " Mark 10:13-14 



310 



All God's Children 

In North Carolina on every day 
of the year: 

- Three babies die 

- 67 children are abused or 
neglected 

- 45 families are started by

of its children 

Juvenile crime rose by 6.9% 

23% of children are not covered 
by medical insurance 

25 % of the population of North 
Carolina is under 18 

Children in America 

22 % of all American children 
live in families below the poverty line. 

45% of African- American 
children, live in families below the 
poverty line 

Every 2 days an African- 
American child under the age of 14 
was the victim of a firearm homicide 

1 in 3 girls under the age of 18 
will be sexually abused 

1 in 6 boys under the age of 18 
will be sexually abused 

1 child is killed each day by a 
family member 

This data was taken from one or more of the following 
sources: Kids Count Data Book, The Ecumenical Child 
Care Network & publications of the Children's Defense 
Fund. 



What Can Your Church Do? 

-Ask your Session and congregation to 
focus on the needs of children both in your 
church and community. 
-Raise money to support: 

-Hunger program 

-Shelters for abused women and 
children 

-Crop Walk 

-Education on children's issues in 
your community 

-Child care scholarships for day 

care 

-Educate your church, especially people 

who come in contact with children about 

issues of abuse (both sexual and physical), 

neglect, and hunger 

-Provide health insurance for a child 

-Start a day care center 

-Pray for our children 

-Pray for the leaders of our children 

-Learn to listen to children, their fears, 

their hurts and their problems 

-Organize activities that provide children 

with religious and recreational 

opportunities outside the normal 

worship\church school setting 

-Have a special Sunday to recognize 

children and those who work with them. 

-Be a source for healing 

-Be an advocate for your children in your 

church, your community, and your nation. 

^Gtv^'el^r^^y^P'Bo^Urio my teaching; 
incline your ears to the words of my 
mouth. We will not hide them from their 
children; we will tell to the coming 
generation the glorious deeds of the 
Lora\...so that they should set their hope in 
God, and not forget the works of God, but 
keep his commandments....Psalm 78: 1,4,7

vote of the Committee, we ask Council to present this resolution before the Presbytery for discussion and 
endorsement and that if it passes the review of Presbytery, a letter be forwarded to Synod indicating Presbytery 
support for the resolution. 



ACTION: 

3. The Resolution was referred to the Bills and Overtures Committee and was passed during the 
report of the Bills and Overtures Committee later in the meeting (see page 14).

REPORT OF THE EXAMINATIONS COMMITTEE 
W. Russell Ward, Jr., Moderator 

Presbytery proceeded with the examination of Carol Carpenter Fisher, and Paul R. Snell, who wish to transfer 
into Salem Presbytery. They have been examined and approved by the Examinations Committee of Presbytery. 

RECEPTION OF CAROL C FISHER 



ACTION: 

6. Presbytery approved the committee and floor examination Carol C. Fisher in accordance with 
Book of Order G-11.0402. 

a. Carol C. Fisher was received from National Capital Presbytery to accept the call of the 
Hawfields Presbyterian Church to serve as Associate Pastor effective January, 1994. 

b. Her credo which follows, was approved. 

I believe in one God who is revealed in the three persons of the Trinity: Creator, 
Redeemer, and Sustainer. God created the universe and called it good and made us in God's 
own image. We were created to have a convenantal relationship with God and while God has 
remained faithful we have not We, as human beings, have sinned in so far as we have 
separated ourselves from God and have not measured up to our God-given potential We 
deserve to be forsaken, and yet, we receive forgiveness if we truly repent of our sins. 

God's grace enables us to be saved through faith and this salvation centers around a 
personal relationship with Jesus Christ. I trust in Jesus Christ, the Son of God, who was with 
us in human flesh and is my Lord and Savior. Christ came to preach good news and He was 
crucified, giving His life for the sins of the world. God used this seeming defeat to proclaim 
victory in that Christ was raised from the dead thus redeeming all of humanity. 

We have been blessed with the gift of the Holy Spirit who unites us in the body of Christ 
known as the church. The Spirit sustains and comforts us and calls us into service in the 
broken world in which we live. We are given the power to be God's servants and part of our 
service is to worship God. We are called to worship as individuals and families and especially 
as a corporate body of the community of faith. In worship, we experience what God has done, 
is doing, and will do in Jesus Christ. Hearing the Word of God from the Scriptures is of vital 
importance in order that we may know and obey God's will 



11 



God is also present with us in the sacraments of baptism and the Lord's Supper which were 
instituted by Christ The church uses the sacraments to commemorate the redemptive acts by 
which believers are united to Jesus Christ. As we are united in worship and the sacraments, 
so we become the body of Christ at work in the world. We are empowered and enabled to 
go forth in response to God's love to witness, feed the hungry, shelter the homeless, and to 
work for peace and justice. 

It is a great comfort to me to know that nothing can separate us from the love of God and 
I eagerly await the return of my Lord and Savior. Meanwhile, I strive to be a faithful servant 
by living out the call of the prophet Micah to "do justice, love kindness, and walk humbly with 
my God." 

Presbytery approved the establishment of an Associate Pastor relationship between Ms. Fisher 
and the Hawfields Presbytery Church effective January, 1994; approved the following Terms of 
Call; and the Call was ordered placed in her hands. The Committee on Ministry is satisfied 
that this congregation has complied with the EEO provisions of the Book of Order (G- 11.0502 
g.) and the AAEEO Policy adopted by Salem Presbytery (July 1993) in offering this call.

RECEPTION OF PAUL R. SNELL 



ACTION: 

7. Presbytery approved the committee and floor examination of Paul R. Snell in accordance with 
Book of Order G- 11.0402. 

a. The work of Executive Director of Contact (Telephone Ministries) of Lexington, North 
Carolina, was declared a validated ministry (G-l 1.0403); and The Reverend Paul R. Snell of 
Charlotte Presbytery was received as an active member of Salem Presbytery engaged in a 
validated ministry in service beyond the jurisdiction of this Church (G-l 1.0411). 

b. His credo which follows, was approved: 

I believe in God and I believe God. This is faith. 

But who is God? In order to answer this or any question in this Statement Of Faith I 
believe that we must go to the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments. 

Genesis 1:27 - "So God created human beings, making them to be like himself. He created 
them to be male and female." (TEV) One interpretation - To be like God means to be "male 
and female." Therefore, the least we can say about God - androgynous. God is complete/whole 
(Le., male & female). This suggests to me that I as a human being cannot find 
completeness/wholeness "by myself alone," but rather in relationship to other human beings 
who are different than me, such as in gender, but not exclusively so, and in many other ways. 
Thus, "to be like God" means to be in community; Le., as in "Church," the Body of Christ, 
communion, friendship and fellowship with others, including very close friendships and family 
ties, and as in marriage. As God is in a complete/whole relationship with Godself and with the 
creation, I am commanded by God to love (to be in a complete/whole relationship) with God 
and my neighbor. 

I believe that all my relationships - whether with God or myself, with my neighbors, with 
the creation all around me - are distorted, marred by sin. What is sin? The origin of sin, I 
believe, lies within the mystery of my being created "like God." 

God is wholly and everywhere free. This is confirmed by both Reason (philosophy) and 
Revelation (the Scriptures). Likewise, God has created me to be free - another expression of 
what it means to be created "like God." Thus, I am free to say "Yes" or "No" to what God has 
revealed and commanded. God being free has the prerogative to command the creation, 
including human beings. When I say "No" to God's command - Le., disobey - I am in effect 
declaring my independence of God and myself to be first This is sin and this is, in fact, what 
I have done through my first parents, "the man" (Adam) and "the woman" (Eve) and this is 
what I continue to do in my own thoughts, feelings, words, and actions. 

I believe in the bondage of the will. Sin is a paradox. I am created "like God" - free - but 
once I disobey God, I choose not freedom or bondage. In fact, this is how I was born into the 
world as a child of the first Man/Woman - a bondservant to sin. I am no longer free and I can 
no longer help myself or make my way back to God. I can only choose not God and what 
follows from that - thoughts, feelings, words and actions that distort all my relationships. The 
result of sin is ultimately my own spiritual death and the death of creation itself. 

I believe that only as God chooses to save or rescue me from my own ill-choosing can I be 
saved. The Good News is - this in fact is what God has chosen to do on my behalf and on 
behalf of all creation. While I and all others are no longer free, God remains free. Out of 
God's glorious freedom and love (male & female; the Trinity), God has elected to set in 
motion a Holy Story, written into human history itself, for the salvation of all humankind and, 
with humankind, the creation or cosmos. That story begins with God's call of Abram, son of 



13 



Terah in Ur of the Chaldaeans, and culminates in the very Command of God or Holy Spirit 
made flesh in Jesus, child of Mary and Joseph of Nazareth of Galilee of Palestine at/around 
the year 4 AD., his subsequent crucifixion outside of Jerusalem and burial some thirty years 
later by an act of a court of Rome; and, on the third day of his death and burial was raised by 
a powerful act of God from the dead; the denouement of the story is the Church - the Body 
of Christ - making known this holy story and living out it's new consequences in human history 
to the utmost ends of the earth and even beyond the earth, as we - the human race - have 
entered the Space Age. 

I believe that God's New Story becomes my story as I have faith in Jesus Christ through 
hearing (in preaching) and receiving the Good News (in sacraments). The Good News is this - 
in Jesus Christ, our crucified and risen Lord, our sins are forgiven and, through the presence 
of Jesus Christ in word and sacrament by the Holy Spirit, we are empowered to obey (say "Yes 
to") God's commands. Hearing, receiving, empowerment are a result of the work of Holy Spirit 
in us. The Spirit leads and guides us to a true confession of sin and faith (the Creed). 

I believe the Presence of Christ in preaching, receiving, and empowerment is the work of 
Holy Spirit. With God, the Spirit is everywhere free, present, and powerful to address sin and 
its consequences, to turn evil into good, to make my own story no longer the story of 
Adam/Eve, but God's Story (the Trinity) in human history and beyond human history in the 
Kingdom of God. 

c. Mr. Snell was instructed to sign the obligations required of a minister to be enrolled in 
Presbytery. 



BILLS AND OVERTURES COMMITTEE 

Charles Williams presented the report for the Bills and Overtures Committee. The committee considered 4 
Overtures and/or Resolutions. 

The Resolution from the Higher Education Committee of Salem Presbytery was referred to the Bills and 
Overtures Committee from Presbytery Council. 



ACTION: 

8. Presbytery endorsed the following Resolution: 

Resolution on Synod's role in Campus Ministry 

RESOLVED, that Salem Presbytery urges the Synod of the Mid-Atlantic to affirm Campus 
Ministry as a top level priority in the mission of the Synod, and that this priority be reflected in 
the allocation of staff time and budget resources by the Synod. We believe this action deserves 
support for the following reasons: 

1. Field studies and analyses show that campus ministries play a critical role in retaining young 
adults in the church (The Reforming Tradition. Coalter, Mulder and Weeks; and Presbyterian 
Survey. Sept '93, p. 23). 

2. Campus ministry at ethnic minority institutions, a key issue in the Mid-Atlantic, are best 
supported on Synod level. 

3. Major sponsorship by the Synod makes ecumenical cooperation with other judicatories more 
practical, since geographical boundaries vary from denomination to denomination. 



14 



4. Presbyterian families tend to send their young adults to colleges and universities throughout 
the Synod rather than keeping them within their own Presbytery, high profile campus ministry 
at the Synod level matches these demographic patterns. 

5. The partnership strategy of our Synod is tailor-made for Synod to lead the way in devising a 
variety of coalitions to support campus ministry. 

6. Higher education has historically been a major focus for Synod, defining the role of Synod for 
many churches. 

7. Campus ministry is a direct service provided by the church to a critical sector of the population 
at an important passage through life. 

8. For all the above reasons, Presbyteries and Presbyterians will support campus ministry on a 
Synod level. 

In the light of the redistribution in 1994 of general mission giving from Presbyteries to Synod, we 
trust that the Synod of the Mid-Atlantic will honor the high priority historically given to Campus 
Ministry and will strengthen Synod's support of this mission effort. 



An Overture came from the Session of First Presbyterian Church of Greensboro concerning the election of 
the Moderator of the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church (U.SA.) 



ACTION: 

9. The following Overture was referred to the General Assembly Advisory Committee on the 
Constitution for advice and counsel before any action will be taken by Presbytery. 

Moderator of the General Assembly of the 
Presbyterian Church (U.SA.) 

The office of Moderator of the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A) has 
both symbolic and affective significance for the Church. The one chosen as Moderator carries out 
many ceremonial functions throughout the world and embodies for the Presbyterian "public" a 
physical representation of the best of who we are. 

In addition to the more mystical roles, the Moderator sets the tone of one General Assembly 
meeting by carrying out his or her moderating function. The one chosen for this Office appoints 
the Assembly Vice-Moderator, and committee moderators for the next Assembly, and is a voting 
member of the General Assembly Council. In addition he or she sits as an advisory member of 
future Assembly meetings, and for years has frequent advisory access to decision-making processes 
of our Church. 

The Church should, therefore, take optimum care in aiding the wise and thorough preparation 
of the man or woman elected to this important office. The present Manual of the General 
Assembly provides for the election of the Moderator at the be ginnin g of the same meeting over 
which he or she presides, thus the moderator-of-the-meeting role commences immediately upon 
election. 

The one chosen would be much better prepared to fulfill the duties of this vital position if the 
function of moderating the Assembly meeting was the Moderator's last duty rather than the 



15 



first. This proposed revision to the process called for in the present Manual of the General 
Assembly would provide ample time for the new Moderator to observe the style of the previous 
Moderator during the meeting at which he or she was elected. There would be a year to prepare 
both in terms of intended leadership style and in grasp of parliamentary order. 

This proposed revision would allow the new Moderator to see the worldwide witness of our 
Church and its partners in ministry, and to know and understand the "mind of the Church" 
through the myriad of contacts afforded him or her. Prior to having to preside, the Moderator 
would become familiar with the ongoing working of the General Assembly and could be more fully 
prepared to understand the issues before the Church. Thus, the Moderator, before "moderating", 
would have significant input from the Church which would help the General Assembly meeting, 
over which he or she presides, to seek the will of Christ 

The extensive travels of the Moderator would be more focused and have more impact on the 
upcoming General Assembly rather than being largely symbolic and ceremonial. A Moderator 
better prepared and focused for the role would result 

This proposal has been discussed with some former General Assembly Moderators. These 
long time observers and participants in General Assembly meetings who have personally 
experienced the role of Moderator of the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church (U.SA) 
supported this revision of the process. 

No basic change is proposed in the manner in which the Moderator is elected under Standing 
Rule 25. 

Overture: 

The Session of First Presbyterian Church (Greensboro) requests that Salem Presbytery overture 
the 206th General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A) to amend the Manual of the 
General Assembly as follows: 

1. In Standing Rule 25, Paragraph d, that the first sentence be amended by striking the word "its" 
and inserting the word "a", so that the sentence reads, "When the General Assembly is ready 
to elect a moderator, only one speech shall be made placing in nomination the name of each 
nominee". 

2. In Standing Rule 26 

a. To amend the first sentence by striking the numbers "205th" and "(1993)" so that the 
amended sentence reads "The title of the Moderator is The Moderator of the General 
Assembly of the Presbyterian Church (U.SA.)." 

b. Strike all of paragraph a. and insert: "The term of office for a Moderator shall begin with 
the adjournment of the General Assembly that elects him or her. He or she shall preside 
over the next meeting of the General Assembly or until a successor is elected." 

3. Upon approval of these amendments the transition of this new sequence would be affected as 
follows: The next Moderator elected after these amendments are approved will preside over 
the General Assembly Meeting at which he or she is elected (the present sequence) AND the 
next General Assembly Meeting (the new sequence). Thereafter, the Moderator will be in 
office and preside as described above.

Two Overtures were received regarding the n Re-Imagining Conference" held in Minneapolis November 4-7, 
1993. 

OVERTURE TO SALEM PRESBYTERY BY THE SESSION 
OF STARMOUNT PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH 
Approved 23 January, 1994 

The Session of Starmount Presbyterian Church respectfully overtures Salem Presbytery to overture General 
Assembly of Presbyterian Church (U.S.A) to initiate an investigation of national staff who participated in an 
ecumenical conference, "Re-Imagining God, the Community, and the Church." 

If the investigation reveals activities of the participants from our National Staff and our sponsoring 
organizations which are heretical to our reformed doctrine, we request General Assembly to take appropriate 
action (including a refund of S66,000 from the Bicentennial Fund. 

James E. Layman. Moderator Betty Hankins, Clerk 

OVERTURE FROM 14 MINISTER MEMBERS OF SALEM PRESBYTERY 

We move that Salem Presbytery, as of this date, withhold transmission of all funds to the General Assembly 
and its attendant organizations until such time as Presbytery shall have made a thorough study and evaluation 
of the "Re-Imagining 1993" Conference held in Minneapolis on November 4-7, and discussed the entire matter 
on the floor of a subsequent Presbytery meeting. Such withholding of funds shall not extend to include the 
following: 

a. Annual denomination-wide special offerings 

b. Funds designated by congregations for support of specific causes 
c Any loan payments that may be due 

<L Regular payments due to the Board of Pensions for medical and retirement programs 
e. Responses to Presbyterian World Services Emergency Relief Alerts, to assist in natural disaster 
situations 

Funds withheld under the provisions of this motion are to be set aside, and held in escrow, until the matter 
is resolved by the Presbytery.

The Committee recognizes and shares the widespread concern, alarm and, in many cases, anger within Salem 
Presbytery over reports of the "Re-Imagining...Go(L the Community, the Church" held in Minneapolis, MN, 



17 



November 4-7, 1993. Many of our people have received the "Leadership Alert" circulated by the independent 
publication "The Presbyterian Layman" and its subsequent regular issues. Some have read "The Presbyterian 
Outlook's" account or have received information from the General Assembly Council, other presbyteries, and 
from Methodist or Lutheran neighbors. Local newspapers in several of our cities have also reported on the 
conference from the vantage points of several denominations— all critically. 

We have a grave concern that the charges levelled by The Presbyterian Layman" are serious matters and must 
be taken seriously by Salem Presbytery and by the leadership of our whole denomination. We share the need 
of the sponsors of both the overture and the resolution to know what is being done by the General Assembly 
Council and any other groups within our Denomination who may have had sponsorship of this conference. 

The Bills and Overtures Committee also has deep concern over what we consider to be precipitous the action 
called for in the resolution offered by the "Fourteen Minister-Members" calling on Salem Presbytery to 
withhold certain funds from the General Assembly as a means of getting the General Assembly Council's 
attention or of coercing it into action. We are equally gravely concerned at the message such decision by our 
Presbytery to withhold funds would send to our churches and members. We recognize that a subsequent 
meeting of Presbytery may choose this course of dramatic action, but the Committee does not recommend this 
as appropriate action at this time. 

The Committee is of the unanimous opinion that such punitive action should not be considered until a 
thorough inquiry into the conference has been made to establish facts and to weed out fiction. 



ACTIONS: 

10. Presbytery voted to postpone action on the aforementioned recommendations until the inquiry 
called for below is completed and acted upon by Presbytery. 

11. Presbytery directed its Stated Clerk to mail a pastoral letter immediately to all churches and 
Sessions reporting this Presbytery meeting's response to our concern about the conference and this 
action. 

12. The Stated Clerk was also directed to send a letter immediately to the General Assembly Council 
before its February 14-16, 1994, meeting reporting to the Council the Presbytery's grave concern, 
the substance of the overture and resolution, and this Presbytery's actions in these 
recommendations. 

13. The Committee to study the "Re-Imagining '93" Conference recently appointed by Salem 
Presbytery Council was dissolved and replaced with a Committee of Inquiry broadly representative 
of the Presbytery and with the following charge: 

- Investigate thoroughly the planning for, funding of, programming and all aspects of the 
conference; 

- Determine whether or not the theological integrity of our Presbyterian/Reformed tradition has 
been compromised by participation in and support of this conference; 

- Determine if the "peace, unity and purity" of the church has been violated or furthered; 

- Seek an accounting of the disposition and use of the 566,000 appropriated by the Allocation 
Committee of the Bicentennial Fund, and any other Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) funds which 
may have been appropriated for this conference; 

- Pray earnestly that God will use this process for the instruction, training and correction of the 
Church of Jesus Christ; 



18 



The Committee of Inquiry will be constituted by nine (9) members as follows: 

Bob Fiedler (Moderator) 
Jean Rodenbough 
Steve Moss 
Herb Nelson 

The rem ainin g five (5) will be Elders chosen by Presbytery's Council in its February 10, 1994, 
meeting from nominations received by Wednesday, February 9, 1994. 

14. This Committee of Inquiry was directed to report no later than the April 26, 1994, meeting of 
Presbytery and/or at a special meeting of Presbytery called before April 26, 1994, to receive its 
report (should such special meeting be called). 

15. The General Assembly Council will be urged to complete its own investigation of this conference 
and make its report(s) to the denomination, including its own actions and responses. 

16. Presbytery concluded its discussion and action of this report and recommendations with special 
prayer.

39. Presbytery approved the following credo for Katherine L. Carpenter 

My statement of faith begins with God for that is where faith begins - with the mystery of God. 
God has been since before there was time. We cannot imagine it. Out of love, God created all 
that is and called the creation good. The wonder and the vastness of God are reflected in all of 
God's creation. People, too, are part of this creation. We are created in God's image and are 
loved infinitely by God. 

We also are alienated from God, from ourselves and from the rest of creation. We forget that 
we are not the creator and try to be God. This is called sin and it is a part of our being. 



21 



In spite of our sin, God continues to love us and desires to be reconciled to us. God's love 
is greater than the power of sin. To show us this great love, God became incarnate in the person 
of Jesus Christ Christ lived among us showing people how to live and unmasking the powers of 
sin and death. Jesus showed us the possibilities for life and lived out the Kingdom of God. Jesus 
was fully human and fully God. People could not tolerate Jesus' way of life and killed Jesus. God 
is more powerful even than death and God raised Christ from the dead - overcoming death 
forever. 

In Christ, we are reconciled to God, we are given life, and we are made whole. 

In the person of the Holy Spirit, God continues to work in the world. Throughout the 
centuries, the Spirit has been at work in men and women, calling them to faith and empowering 
them to show forth God's love in a broken world. Christ's work of reconciliation continues in and 
through the church - the body of Christ. The church is made up of broken human beings, yet, 
through the Holy Spirit, we are given the power to act in Christ's name. The church is called to 
continue Christ's work of justice and reconciliation being an agent of transformation wherever 
there is hatred, oppression and death. 

In Scripture, we find the stories of how God has acted in the lives of men and women and in 
the world since the beginning of time. This is our story as God's people. It tells us of how God 
established a covenant with us through the people of Israel and later through Jesus Christ. 
Scripture speaks to us of the life of Christ and of the beginnings of the church. It continues to 
teach us and to inspire us. 

I believe that God is at work in the world today just as surely as God always has been at work. 
I believe that God speaks to us through prayer and that God continues to call us to act on behalf 
of the poor and the oppressed bringing sight to the blind, healing those who are sick and 
ministering to all who are in need. I believe God has placed gifts within each person. God calls 
each of us to use our gifts in the world. 

40. In accordance with G-14.0314 a., and pending her successful examination by the Presbytery of 
Greater Atlanta, Salem Presbytery acceded to the request of the Presbytery of Greater Atlanta and 
appointed the following Commission to meet on Sunday, March 27, 1994, at the New Creation 
Community Church to ordain, enroll, and transfer Katherine L. Carpenter to the Presbytery of 
Greater Atlanta.

COMMITTEE ON PREPARATION FOR MINISTRY 



Jean Rodenbough, Moderator 



ACTION: 

41. The following persons were enrolled as Inquirers, under the provisions set forth in G-14.0303: 

22 



Margaret Croweil First Presbyterian Church, Greensboro 
Debbie Layman Starmount Presbyterian Church, Greensboro 



ACTION: 

42. Dr. Wesley Kort was enrolled as an "Extraordinary Inquirer," under the terms designated in G- 
14.0313. The reasons for such a designation are as follows: 

Dr. Kort is a graduate of Calvin Theological Seminary, having received a B.D. degree there 
in the 1950's (transcripts are available through our committee). He then went on to graduate 
work at the University of Chicago, and completed his Ph.D while at the same time serving as a 
pastor to various churches in the Christian Reformed Church, his original denomination. After 
teaching at Princeton University and continuing to serve churches, he and Phyllis moved to 
Durham where he has been teaching in the Dept. of Religion at Duke University since the mid- 
1960's. During those early years at Duke he and Phyllis, now an ordained minister serving as 
Associate Pastor at Burlington First, joined the Westminster Presbyterian Church in Durham. 
Wesley served as an Elder in that congregation and now is an Elder at Burlington First, where 
his membership now resides. 

Dr. Kort has completed three years of Greek and one year of Hebrew, as well as one year 
each in New Testament exegesis and Hebrew Bible exegesis. He has written books and articles 
and is a recognized scholar in the field of Bible and literature. At present he serves two small 
churches in the Oxford area but is not able to preside over the sacraments. Because he decided 
on a teaching ministry early in his career, he was not "ordainable," according to the practice of 
the Christian Reformed Church, and did not pursue ordination after joining the Presbyterian 
Church. 

He now feels called to ordained ministry, and after considerable and prayerful thought came 
to our Committee to begin the process. Because of his long experience in the ministry in various 
ways, especially that of teaching and preaching, and because of his respected academic 
background and strong Reformed theology, we believe he should be considered as an 
"Extraordinary Candidate" (G-14.0313) so that the total time to complete this preparatory process 
for ordination be shortened. We find him extremely qualified for ordination and expect his 
continued ministry in new directions to bless those to whom he ministers as well as the work of 
Salem Presbytery and the Church at large. He has been heartily endorsed by the Session at First 
Church, Burlington, and strongly recommended by the head of staff, the Rev. Charles Williams. 



HUNGER COMMITTEE

REPORT OF THE STATED CLERK 
Elder-Minister Balance at Presbytery Meetings 

As required by the Book of Order G-11.0101b., I report that we have 223 ministers who are resident members 
of Salem Presbytery and 186 potential elder commissioners from our 154 congregations. 

Therefore, there is an imbalance of 37 more ministers than elders. 



Following the plan adopted in 1989 (April 6 meeting), the following action will redress that imbalance. 



ACTION: 




47. Presbytery invited each of the 21 racial ethnic congregations to send one additional elder 


commissioner above that number authorized bv the Book of Order and the remaining 16 elder 


commissioners were invited from the following churches (the April, 1989, Meeting approved that 


these additional commissioners be determined alphabetically [by town]) beginning with the April, 


1994, meeting and continuing through the First Stated Meeting of 1995: 


Hope View 


Vandalia 


Korean First 


Westminster (Greensboro) 


Memorial 


Gulf 


New Creation 


Tabor

Administrative Commission of the Harmony Presbyterian Church 

The Administrative Commission for the Harmony Presbyterian Church was established in April of 1993 for 
the purpose of complying with the wishes of the Harmony Presbyterian Congregation for its dissolution and 
to deal with matters pertaining to that dissolution. The dissolution became effective at the October 26 
meeting of Salem Presbytery. 



28 



The Commission has met on three occasions and has polled the membership as to their wishes for their church 
membership; has secured care and maintenance for church properties; has transferred church funds to Salem 
Presbytery, has discussed matters related to the disposal of church property with interested parties. 

In regard to the disposal of church property, the Commission offers the following recommendation to clarify 
its authority: 



ACTION: 

48. Salem Presbytery authorized the Administrative Commission for the Harmony Presbyterian 
Church to act on behalf of Salem Presbytery in the disposal of real church properties which 
belonged to the former Harmony Presbyterian Church. 



Memorial Church Request Concerning Exception from Chapter 8 Provision on Property 

On June 24, 1984, the congregation of Memorial Church (Greensboro) claimed the exception provided in G- 
8.0701. That action was reported to the former Orange Presbytery but by oversight was not recorded in the 
official minutes of Orange Presbytery. 



ACTION: 

49. Salem Presbytery instructed the Stated Clerk to add the Memorial Church to the list of those 
churches claiming the exception allowed in G-8.0701. 



Concerning John E. Bolton. Jr. Complaint Against the Alamance Session 

The Synod of the Mid- Atlantic Permanent Judicial Commission has sustained the Salem Presbytery Permanent 
Judicial Commission's earlier decision in this case by not sustaining any of Mr. Bolton's complaints. 

Word has come from the General Assembly Permanent Judicial Commission that Mr. Bolton filed a notice 
of appeal of the Synod's decision.

For the thoughtful discussions of controversial issues which were conducted without personal 
acrimony, 

For inspiring worship that called us to reconciliation as we gathered at the common table of 
our Lord; 



30 



For challenging presentations from Peacemaking in regard to children's rights from Robin 
Britt, Secretary of the Department of Human Resources of the State of North Carolina and 
from Stewardship in regard to the ongoing work of the Presbyterian Foundation as it was

For work in ministry accomplished by Z. Holler and John Truitt with best wishes as they meet 
new challenges in the coming years; 

For the anticipated ministries of Paul R. Snell as Executive Director of CONTACT 
Telephone Ministries, of Carol Carpenter Fisher as an Associate of Hawfields Presbyterian 
Church, and Katherine Carpenter in her new work as Campus Minister at Agnes Scott 
College in Greater Atlanta Presbytery. 

For inquiries into further ministry by Margaret Crowell, Dr. Wesley Kort, and Debbie Layman 
and their growth in Christ as they see the mind of the Lord; 

For all who were elected to serve in the various committees of Salem Presbytery and as 
commissioners to the General Assembly; 

And finally, for all reports made and efforts extended for the furtherance of God's Kingdom; 

We leave with a renewed commitment to serve our Lord and Savior. All praise be to God: 
Father, Son, and Holy Spirit Amen.

other").

COUNCIL CONCURS WITH THE FOLLOWING COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATIONS in presenting 
them to Presbytery: 

1. Peacemaking Committee 

2. Personnel Committee 

From its meeting April 14, 1994, the Council brings the following matters to the attention of Salem Presbytery: 
ACTIONS REPORTED: 

12. The Council approved January 21, 1995, as the International Missions Conference date with the Rev. Dr. 
Paul Eckel as principal speaker. 

13. Council approved assigning to the Stated Clerk the responsibility for composing a letter of thanks to host 
churches for Presbytery meetings. (This would replace Resolutions Standing Committee and eliminate 
use of docket time for this purpose.) 

Council approved each of the following matters and asked the Budget and Finance Committee to take the 
money from 1993 year-end funds. With the concurrence of Budget and Finance, Council makes the following 
recommendations: 



ACTION: 

4. Presbytery approved the following expenditures from the 1993 year-end funds: 

a. The amount of $10,000 to a proposed Mission Resource Center - Growing out of the Mwandi 
(Zambia) mission experience, the Thyatira Church is spearheading a drive to construct a 
building on its property to warehouse goods and equipment for mission ventures. It would 
accommodate both international projects and other mission related needs in the U.S. This 
is a joint venture with requests to the Medical Benevolence Foundation, other individual and 
trust donors, and interested churches. The establishment of an inter-church board, including 
one member representing Salem's International Mission Committee, to oversee the program 
and operation of the Mission Resource Center must be in place before the money is released. 

b. Up to S19,000 to replace John Handlers car ('90 Chevrolet Lumina with over 100,000 miles 
of use). The Personnel Committee recommended to Council that the present car be replaced 
with a mini-van to accommodate regular needs to transport people and materials/supplies. 

c Establishment of a $5,000 '94 Program Pool in Council Budget and money set aside for: 

1) A $2,000 commitment to a Racial Ethnic Student Ministry Partnership Proposal through 
the Synod of the Mid- Atlantic 

2) The amount of $500 in support of the Beloved Community Center project in Greensboro. 

3) Up to $2,500 for expenses for the Re-Imagining Conference Inquiry Committee. 

These expenditures would leave an uncommitted balance of $33,110 in 1993 year-end unspent funds. 
The Budget and Finance Committee will make further recommendations at a later time concerning 
the remainder of the 1993 year-end funds. The Council is deeply concerned that the pledges from 
churches for the 1994 (current) Budget are presently $258,616 short There are a number of churches 
who normally have indicated pledges by now which have made no commitment for 1994. The Budget 
and Finance Committee is monitoring the situation carefully. 



63 



ACTIONS: 



5. Presbytery approved the purchase by Camp New Hope (through borrowed funds) of a tractor 
which will be financed through the Budget 

6. Salem Presbytery approved the following 1995 meeting dates: 

February 4 
April 25 
July 28-29 
October 24 

7. Presbytery approved the following persons to serve on Presbytery's Nominating Committee: 

Mr. Neel Fleming of Hawfields for the Class of 1996 
Mrs. Jane Miller of Asheboro First for the Class of 1996 
Mr. Rob Lowe of Rumple Memorial for the Class of 1996 

8. Presbytery appointed the following commission to recognize the Rev. Dr. J. Benjamin Kirkland's 
retirement at his home in Petersburg, VA: 

Elder Lee Harrington Highland 

Deacon Shirley Harrington Highland 

Elder Esther Preston, Moderator Highland 

Elder Bob Hartsell Winston-Salem First 

The Rev. Dr. John Handley Salem Presbytery 

The Rev. Joe Pickard Synod of the Mid-Atlantic 

The following article from Monday Morning by one of Ben's longtime close friends explains the 
appropriateness of this action: 

Ben Kirkland, my close friend, now lies largely immobilized at his home in Petersburg, Virginia, as the 
effects of a malignant brain tumor continue to affect his life. I am writing on his behalf to gather some 
nurture and support for Ben and his family in these ending months. I especially appeal to those men and 
women in ministry who knew Ben in seminary or in the presbyteries Ben served while he held pastorates in 
North Carolina. 

Ben graduated from Union in Richmond in 1969. He then became pastor of the Newell Presbyterian 
Church in Newell, North Carolina, for about five years. He was then called to pastor the Highland 
Presbyterian Church in Winston-Salem. For a man his age, 31, to be the pastor of a large city church was 
testimony to his emerging skills as preacher, paster, teacher, and caregiver. His ministry there went very well 
until he was stricken with a malignant brain tumor in 1981. Following surgery, he was given three to five years 
to live. Yet Ben persevered as he struggled to remain as pastor of the Highland Church. The work there 
became too much, so following his resignation, he entered the Mundelin School in Chicago for some rest, 
nurture, and getting his life back together as best he could. 

Coming back from Chicago, he again tried to be the pastor of a church. Following a brief period as a 
stated supply in Yanceyville, North Carolina, he was called to the Cross Roads Presbyterian Church in 
Mebane, North Carolina, where his ministry lasted for about a year. Ben only wanted to be a faithful pastor. 
Yet the cancer growing in him was preventing him from doing so. Following his resignation from the Cross 
Roads Church, Ben went on disability and returned to his childhood home in Petersburg. He is now there 
being cared for by a full-time nurse and his mother and sister. 



64 



Over the years, Ben's condition has slowly worsened to the point where he can barely speak, has limited 
short-term memory, and cannot do much for himself. Yet Ben remembers the years past very well. When I 
visit with him, he smiles calmly as a small tear makes its way down his cheek. He always tries to ask how I { 
am doing and about the health of my family. His humor is still intact and his faith remains strong. 

Christmas of 1992, when Ben was in critical shape in the hospital, after having suffered a mild stroke, we 
shared the sacrament of the Lord's Supper. It was a time of tears but also of hope as we affirmed the presence 
of God and the love of God and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit 

I feel the final thing I can do for Ben is to somehow let him know how much people do care. It is lonely 
for Ben lying there month after month and not hearing from anyone. Therefore, through this medium, I ask 
you to write him a card or letter as soon as you can to let Ben know others do care. Ben was a good and 
faithful servant for the Church in the name of Jesus Christ for as long as he was able. His brief but important 
ministry affected many people. It would be helpful for Ben and his family to hear from friends of long ago. 
His address: 2246 Walton Street, Petersburg, VA 23805. 

Thank you for your help and support in minis tering to Ben and his family. It will go a long way toward 
healing the pain, the mystery, and the sadness of what has been happening to Ben. 

Joseph F. Condro, Pastor, Bethany Church, Staunton, VA 

OMNIBUS MOTION 

Murray White, Moderator of Council, presented the Omnibus Motion. Following the removal of the change 
in terms of call for Lucius Gray from the Omnibus Motion, the Presbytery approved the remaining 
recommendations in a single vote. The recommendations so approved appear in the reports of the persons 
or committees making them and are designated by an OM in the left margin. 

INTRODUCTIONS 

Elders attending for the first time and other guests were introduced and welcomed. The following ministers 
from other presbyteries were welcomed and seated as Corresponding Members: Aries Davidian of Lackawanna 
Presbytery. 

WELCOME 

The Governing Body was welcomed by the Rev. Dr. George C. Carpenter, Interim Pastor of Guilford Park 
Church. Information regarding the facilities was presented, and the beautiful carvings that are found 
throughout the sanctuary were highlighted. 

ECUMENICAL VISITOR 

The Moderator introduced the Rev. Mr. Hank Boschen, pastor of Christ Lutheran Church, who addressed the 
Presbytery briefly. 

MEMORIAL FOR HOWARD B. DAY, JR.

REPORT OF THE EXAMINATIONS COMMITTEE 
W. Russell Ward, Jr., Moderator 

Presbytery proceeded with the examination of William Riche DeLong, Kurt W. Johnston, Joel M. Long, and 
Dan M. Thornton, who wish to transfer into Salem Presbytery. They have been examined and approved by 
the Examinations Committee of Presbytery. 

RECEPTION OF WILLIAM RICHE DELONG 



ACTION: 

9. Presbytery approved the committee and floor examination of William Riche DeLong in 
accordance with Book of Order G-11.0402. 



66 



a. The work of Chaplain and Supervisor-in-Training at North Carolina Baptist Hospital, 
Winston-Salem, North Carolina, was declared a validated ministry (G-l 1.0403); and The 
Reverend William Riche DeLong of de Cristo Presbytery was received as an active member 
of Salem Presbytery engaged in a validated ministry in service beyond the jurisdiction of this 
Church (G-11.0411); and further, he was authorized to celebrate the Sacrament of Baptism 
(W-2.3011 b) and the Sacrament of the Lord's Supper (W-2.4012 b). 

b. His credo which follows, was approved: 

I believe in God, the creator. God, known to us as father, created all that is and all 
which is not. God did not create out of necessity, but out of God's own choice. In God's 
creating, God became to us, humanity, as partner, by God's choice. This partnership is 
revealed to us in the act of creation which included God's continued care, nurture, and love. 
Partnership is further demonstrated by God's continued breaking into human history, 
principally in the form and person of Christ. 

I believe in the person of Jesus of Nazareth, the Christ, God revealed once for all, his 
love and partnership with humanity. In the "god-man" love, justice and fidelity were made 
known in their purest form. In Christ we are shown the deepest wells of God's love and 
faithfulness. This faithfulness could not be destroyed by sin, by rejection, or even by death. 
In the cross of Christ, all people were brought into the presence of God, made whole, and 
complete. In the cross of Christ we see both the depth of human suffering and the nature 
of suffering itself. Because of the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus, we are invited to 
reframe this suffering into something redemptive both individually and corporately. 

I believe in the active love of God toward creation and toward the Son. This active, 
redemptive love we call the Holy Spirit, leads all to the truth revealed in Christ. The Holy 
Spirit is one with the Father and Son, just as our love for our children cannot be separated 
from the sense of who we are. These mysteries of God can only be revealed to us by faith 
and through the active work of the Holy Spirit 

Human beings, women and men are creatures seeking God- In this journey, many look 
for other substitutes for God leading to chemical addiction, dysfunctional relationships, 
interpsychic distortions, and feeling of isolation and depression. Although restoring a 
relationship with God cannot be equalled in wholeness, restoring functional persons may 
require other interventions along with this mended relationship. Any of these forms of 
idolatry will lead to separation from God known to us as sin. 

Because of God's love for us, God broke into human history in the form of Jesus of 
Nazareth. This event was witnessed by faithful men and women and written down in what 
we call the Christian scriptures. In this book we are invited to hear the ancient story of 
Christ and God's love for us. In the Hebrew scriptures, we learn of God's faithfulness and 
covenant. Neither book describes God fully without the other. In the Christian scripture we 
are given instruction for moral behavior and spiritual guidance. As with all things human, 
these writings are conditioned by the language, thoughts, and literary forms of the times and 
places in which they were written. Thus, the church is called to interpret the scriptures with 
a historical and literary understanding, looking to God for faithful interpretation of scripture 
to current and modern problems. 

In the revelation of God, people of faith gather together for the purpose of worship, 
communion, instruction, sacraments, friendship, mission, and justice. We call this the church. 
In the life of the church we celebrate the love of God through the gifts given to the church. 
These include preaching and teaching, praise and prayer, baptism, and the Lord's Supper. 
It is the responsibility of the church to insure that these gifts are expressed in a manner 
which is meaningful to new and different generations. The church is God's active witness in 
a broken and hurting world. The church is called to be an instrument of justice and 
reconciliation in this world which God loves. As a community of faith, the church is still 
made of people in need of God's grace and each other's compassion. The church is called 
to openness and respect of other religions, including non-christian faiths. The church in 



67 



seeking to be God's faithful witness in this world, must evaluate itself in many ways. This 
evaluation should include the insights of other human disciplines including psychology, 
sociology, philosophy and political science. 

c. Mr. DeLong was instructed to sign the obligations required of a minister to be enrolled in 
Presbytery. 



RECEPTION OF KURT W. JOHNSTON 



ACTION: 

10. Presbytery approved the committee and floor examination of Kurt W. Johnston in accordance 
with Book of Order G-11.0402. 

a. The work as Interim Pastor of the Presbyterian Church of the Covenant, Greensboro, was 
declared a validated ministry (G- 11.0403); and The Reverend Kurt W. Johnston of Charlotte 
Presbytery was received as an active member of Salem Presbytery engaged in a validated 
ministry effective March 6, 1994. 

b. His credo which follows, was approved: 

I believe in One God who is trinitarian in being, who has revealed Godself as Father, 
Son, and Holy Spirit. I believe that this God is the Creator of the Universe and all three 
Persons in the Godhead were and are involved in Creating, Redeeming, and Sustaining. I 
believe that creation is essentially good, including humanity, but has become corrupted, or 
fallen. 

I believe that God is not responsible for the fallen creation, but that humanity bears that 
responsibility. I believe that God has taken the initiative to deliver or redeem fallen 
humanity. God has taken the initiative by entering human history, by becoming a true man 
in the person of Jesus of Nazareth. 

I believe that Jesus of Nazareth reveals the heart of God; He is the full revelation of the 
love of God, the being of God; He is the image of God. And yet at the same time Jesus also 
reveals what true humanity is for He is the image of humanity. Jesus loves us, fallen 
humanity as God only can and shows us that God is for us and not against us. Jesus loves 
God as man is supposed to, with all of one's heart, mind, and soul. 

I believe that God is for us and not against us, that God has already reconciled the world 
to Himself in and through the birth, life, and death of Jesus of Nazareth. On the other hand, 
God has given the Church the ministry of reconciliation, of calling everyone to repent and 
believe the good news - that God has reconciled the world unto Himself in and through the 
person of Jesus of Nazareth. Therefore we must reconcile ourselves to God since He has 
taken the first step to restore us into a positive relationship with Himself. 

I believe that the Holy Spirit is God present and active in the World. It is the Holy 
Spirit who reveals to us the Saving Work of God the Father through the Son for us. I 
believe that God the Father is the content of what is Revealed; I believe that God the Son 
is the Revelation of the Father, and I believe that God the Holy Spirit is the Revealer of our 
minds that enables us to respond to the Revelation of Jesus Christ. 

I believe that God has made God's self known; first in Creation, second in History 
through might acts of deliverance such as the Exodus and the cross, third in Scripture which 
bears witness to these Mighty acts of God, and fourth in the Church. But God has made 
Godself Uniquely and Absolutely known in the Person of Jesus of Nazareth. 

I believe that Scripture is the only authoritative guide for faith and practice and that 
scripture bears witness to the Word of God, the Second Person of the Trinity, Jesus Christ, 
who is the Revelation of God. 

68 



c Mr. Johnston was instructed to sign the obligations required of a minister to be enrolled in 
Presbytery. 



RECEPTION OF JOEL M. LONG 



ACTION: 



11. Presbytery approved the committee and floor examination of Joel M. Long in accordance with 
Book of Order G-l 1.0402. 

a. Joel M. Long was received from the Presbytery of Western North Carolina to accept the call 
of the First Presbyterian Church of Eden to serve as Pastor effective March 7, 1994. 

b. His credo which follows, was approved: 

I believe in God 

...the Father Almighty. Maker of Heaven and Earth 
...the Son. Jesus Christ Redeemer. Lord and Savior of all 
...the Holy Spirit Presence of God in the world and Life Giver 
I believe the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments to be by the Holy Spirit the 
unique and authoritative witness to Jesus Christ in the Church universal, and God's Word 
to us. 

I believe the essential tenets of the Reformed faith are expressed in the confessions of 
our Church and are authentic and reliable expositions of what Scripture leads us to believe 
and do as followers of Christ 

I believe the Church is God's creation. She is an agent of reconciliation, a light to the 
nations, and servant to all in need. 

I believe there were two sacraments, Baptism and the Lord's Supper, instituted by Christ 
to be celebrated in the Church. They serve as signs and seals of His grace. 

In conclusion, I believe God's grace is sufficient for all thin gs. By His grace we 
experience the forgiveness of sins, empowerment for mission, the ability to love our neighbors 
as ourselves, the faith to be His disciples, and the call to be good stewards of His Creation. 

c. Presbytery approved the establishment of a Pastoral relationship between Mr. Long and the 
First Presbyterian Church of Eden effective March 7, 1994; approved the following Terms of 
Call; and the Call was ordered placed in his hands. The Committee on 

Ministry is satisfied that this congregation has complied with the EEO provisions of the Book

RECEPTION OF DAN M THORNTON 



ACTION: 

12. Presbytery approved the committee and floor examination of Dan M Thornton in accordance 
with Book of Order G-11.0402. 

a. Dan M Thornton was received from the Presbytery of Western North Carolina to accept the 
call of the Second Presbyterian Church of Salisbury effective April 1, 1994. 

b. His credo which follows, was approved: 

The Bible records the revelation of God. The Bible is "given by inspiration of God, to 
be the rule of faith and life" (The Book of Confessions. 6.002). I believe the Bible is the 
Word of God and therefore is the primary source of authority. The Bible reveals God as the 
triune God, God the Creator, God the Redeemer, and God the Comforter. The trinity 
consists of God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit God is the God who acts in history. God 
created the universe, is all powerful, and is the Ruler of the universe. God is holy, just, and 
eternal. "God is spirit" (John 4:24). God created humanity in God's own image. God's 
creation was good but humanity sinned when we refused to accept the sovereignty of God 
over our lives (Romans 5:12). God sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to redeem humanity from the 
sin that had enslaved it The Bible reveals God as Redeemer. God became flesh and dwelt 
among us (John 1:14). Through the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ, God won 
the final victory over sin and death. The work of Jesus Christ redeemed the world. Jesus 
told us that He would send the Comforter to be with us. God works today and has worked 
through the ages through the Holy Spirit (Galatians 4:6). The Holy Spirit is the means by 
which God is at work today in the Church. 

The church is the community of those called by God into fellowship with Him and with 
each other to know and do His will (Ephesians 1:10). Through the Church, God provides 
for developing the Christian mind and conscience through preaching, teaching, Bible study, 
prayer and the sacraments. The church is a nurturing and caring community. The church 
must be the place of proclamation and remembrance. The church is the body for the 
retelling of the story of the mighty acts of God among the people of God. This retelling the 
story gives the body its mooring, its heritage. 



70 



In the twentieth century, the church must be a community to counteract the forces of 
individualism. God created a communal being in humanity. The church tells the story of the 
relationship of the community and God. God is the God who acts in our history, our lives. 
People are looking for meaning to life and the church must provide this meaning. Humanity 
has sinned and the church is the place for redemption. The church must provide guidance 
and direction in the world in which we live. Individualism has robbed us of our moral 
standards. The church must provide these. The church has the Bible and tradition. This is 
the authority, the standard needed for today's society. Preaching is a major part of our 
worship. Preaching and visiting in the homes of the members are major means of building 
community. 

c Presbytery approved the establishment of a Pastoral relationship between Mr. Thornton and 
the Second Presbyterian Church of Salisbury effective April 1, 1994, approved the following 
Terms of Call; and ordered the Call placed in his hand. The Committee is satisfied that this 
congregation has complied with the EEO provisions of the Book of Order (G-11.0502 g.) and 
the AAEEO Policy adopted by Salem Presbytery (July, 1993) in offering this calL

official participation or may serve temporarily as pastor or in some other capacity in another 
denomination, and may, with the approval of presbytery, accept ministerial membership in that 
Church for the period of such service without forfeiting his or her membership in the 
Presbyterian Church (U.SA.) presbytery in which he or she hold membership. Before entering 
upon such service the minister shall request permission of the presbytery of membership. The 
committee on ministry of the presbytery shall make a thorough review of the proposed

enumerated in G- 11.00403, without exception. If the presbytery grants the permission requested, 
such permission shall be subject to review and renewal annually." Salem Presbytery granted

MEMORIAL FOR ROSCOE BROWN FISHER 
November 21, 1909 - October 27, 1993 

Roscoe Fisher was born in Salisbury, North Carolina, the son of the late Albert Luther V. and Cora Brown 
Fisher. He received his bachelor's degree from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (1931); and 
master's degree from the University in 1935. He studied at the Lutheran Theological Southern Seminary in 
Columbia, South Carolina, Class of 1934. He did further graduate/post graduate study at the UNC School of 
Journalism, Emory University, Columbia University as well as Union Seminary in Virginia. He earned the 
Doctor of Ministry degree from McCormick Theological Seminary in Chicago in 1978. 

On August 28, 1935, he married the former Pauline Little, who survives. His children include one son, 
Luther Brown Fisher, II, of Chapel Hill and four daughters, Mrs. Martha F. Ouderkirk of Atlanta, GA Mrs. 
Mary F. Lemons of Albemarle, Mrs. Miriam F. Huneycutt of Norwood, and Mrs. Millie F. Milam of

love him." (James 1:12) 



(Written by the Rev. Dr. E. Thomas Miller)

MEMORIAL FOR JOHN W. LUKE 
1898 - 1993 

Rev. John Wheeling Luke was born March 6, 1898, in Charlestown, West Virginia, and attended 
Hampden-Sydney College, where he would later receive an honorary Ph.D. After hearing God's call on his 
life, he received his M.Div. from Union Theological Seminary. 

Rev. John Luke was ordained on May 28, 1927, by Winston-Salem Presbytery and came to Glendale 
Springs, North Carolina, that same year. Here he met and married Mary Shaw, a Christian worker from 
Wagram, North Carolina. He was a man made for these mountains, and he grew to be loved by all, Christian 
and non-Christian alike. Dr. Luke established the first boy scout troop in Ashe County, served on the draft 
board, and established several churches, and was responsible for many accepting Jesus Christ as their Lord and 
Savior. There was literally no one that didn't love Rev. Luke, for his life was one of love and service to 
anyone who came his way. 

When Dr. Luke came to Ashe County there wasn't much work so there wasn't much money, and when he 
saw a family in need, he went about meeting that need, even when it meant giving up some personal need to 
help out someone else. If he had it, it was to be used to minister to others: be it food or shoes. John Luke 
was a living example of "do unto others as you would have them do unto you". 

And he loved the youth of the Blue Ridge area. He once took a bunch of boys to Washington and while 
returning home, one young man remembered that he hadn't paid for his cold drink. Now Mr. Luke wanted 
them to know the importance of stewardship, so he turned around, drove 30 miles and let the young man pay 
for his drink. Many would have said, "Don't worry, it's only a nickel", but not John Luke. He was a man 
devoutly honest and wanted all to know that honesty was of God. 

When Dr. Luke retired, he continued to serve the youth in our area by having a Wednesday evening youth 
night in the gym built in his and Mary's son's honor. He was and is greatly loved in these mountains he called 
home. And he will live on in the hearts of all who he touched through his years as minister, friend, counselor, 
and brother in Jesus Christ 

The Rev. Dr. John Wheeling Luke died October 14, 1993, in Birmingham, Alabama, and now lives forever 
with his Lord and Savior, Jesus, the Christ.

GHANA REPORT 

Charles and Marian Cameron reported on their recent trip to Ghana. Charles requested 15 seconds of silent 
prayer for the people in Ghana and those in South Africa. 

OUTDOOR MINISTRIES DIVISION 
Guy Hunt, Moderator 

Enrollment in our camps is growing from year to year. Guy Hunt urged churches to encourage their children 
and youth to attend one of the camps co-owned by Salem Presbytery. 

PERSONNEL COMMITTEE 
Rosa Yourse, Acting Moderator 

The Personnel Committee conducted the annual performance review of the Reverend Hewon Han on April 
5, 1994. 

The review revealed that Hewon is consistent and helpful, that he is frequently used as a "sounding board", 
and that he is a man of strong faith and convictions. 

The Committee encourages Hewon to continue his development of a goal-oriented model for Christian 
Education. The Committee also encourages him to share more of his ethnic heritage with the groups with 
which he works. 

Salem Presbytery is truly blessed to have him on its staff. 



ACTION: 

27. The Reverend Hewon Han was commended for his work for Salem Presbytery, and Ed Lewis led 
the Presbytery in a prayer thanking God for Hewon and his life and work among us. 



The Committee received a request from Mike Warren, Associate Presbyter for Care and Development of 
Leadership, for an adjustment in his housing allowance. 



ACTION: 

28. The following resolution was adopted by Salem Presbytery: 

Whereas, section 107 of the Internal Revenue Code permits a Minister of the Gospel to exclude 
from gross income a church-designated allowance paid to him/her for actual expenses in owning 
or renting a home; and 

Whereas, the Rev. Michael Warren is compensated by Salem Presbytery exclusively for services 
as a Minister of the Gospel; and 

Whereas, Salem Presbytery does not provide the Rev. Michael Warren with a parsonage; 
therefore, it is hereby 



76 



Resolved that of the total compensation paid to the Rev. Michael Warren for calendar year 1994, 
40% ($16,632) be designated to be a housing allowance pursuant to section 107 of the Internal 
Revenue Code; and it is further 

Resolved, that the designation of $16,632 as a housing allowance shall apply to calendar year 
1994 and all future years unless otherwise provided. 



ACTIONS: 

29. The Rev. Michael Warren's salary package was increased by $2,000, effective for 1995. 

30. Presbytery approved a 4% salary increase for all Presbytery personnel for 1995. 



MEMORIAL FOR THOMPSON BROWN SOUTHALL, JR. 

Tom Southall loved the small membership church! Born in McDowell, Virginia, where his father was 
pastor of three churches, his happiest years in ministry were spent in similar settings. His wife of 57 years, 
T illian Hedleston Crane of Nashville, Tennessee, studied at the Assembly's Tra inin g School (now PSCE). 
They were married May 20, 1936. 

College and seminary were hard work for Tom. There were many things happening at once, which was 
characteristic of his life. He began at Hampden-Sydney College in 1922, finished at Randolph Macon College 
with a Bachelor of Arts Degree after teaching and working in business. That same pattern continued at Union 
Seminary in Richmond. He served the nearby Ashland Church while at seminary, continued after ordination 
by East Hanover Presbytery, July 12, 1936, and added a Stated Supply relationship with Millford Church and 
King's Chapel in 1937. In 1938 Tom and Lil answered God's call to service in Korea. After almost two years 
in language school and assignment to a mission station in Southern Korea, they were visited by a U. S. State 
Department representative and advised to pack two suitcases and flee before the Japanese invasion. They were 
on the boat the next day just before the outbreak of World War EL Lil was pregnant with their first child, and 
Thompson Brown Southall, HI was born in Greensboro, North Carolina. The family then moved to Banner 
Elk where Tom accepted a call as pastor. While in that pastorate Florence was born. 

The growing family left their beloved mountains in 1946 for a call to Tom as Home Mission Secretary of 
New Orleans Presbytery. Tom's multi-faceted life is never more clear than the New Orleans period: 1) He 
started a Chinese speaking chapel, 2) was director of college work, 3) and was away at his continued studies 
at Union Seminary when the twins (Curtis and Marable) were born on April 1-no foolin'! The ThM Degree 
was awarded in 1949. The thesis centered on the ups and downs of the small churches he had known. Tom 
left the flat lands in 1954 to become the Executive Secretary of Concord Presbytery where he served until 1966. 
His love for small churches continued through his entire service to the church, and, characteristically, his last 
active pastorate was the Beulah, Pisgah Monterey, and Crabbottom Churches very near his birthplace in the 
Virginia mountains. Upon his retirement by Lexington Presbytery November 1, 1970, the So ut halls moved 
back to Statesville, North Carolina. Lil was an accomplished DCE and served a number of churches, including 
Ashland, where their ministry together began. 

Upon leaving Statesville in the 1970's the Southalls moved to a farm near Staunton where Tom continued 
stated supply assignments for Shenandoah Presbytery. Lil's last DCE work was at the Covenant Church, 
Staunton, Virginia, where she also became an elder. Four years ago they moved to the Sunnyside Home near 
Harrisonburg, Virginia, where Tom died November 18, 1993. Lil continues to live at Sunnyside. 



77 



Tom Southall was a faithful servant of Christ who served his Lord with devotion and good humor 
throughout his 88 years. He loved the Church, especially small ones, never knew a stranger, and was an 
encouraging model for many young pastors. "Well done, good and faithful servant!"

Madison Presbyterian Church Administrative Commission 

TO: John Handley, Stated Clerk, Salem Presbytery 

FROM: Administrative Commission for Madison Presbyterian Church 



The Administrative Commission for Madison Presbyterian Church understands that the title, "Interim Pastor", 
G- 14.0513b does not correctly define the pastoral relationship between the Rev. Molly Morgan and Madison 
Presbyterian Church, as that church was not actively seeking a pastor at the time of her employment, and in 
fact, was enjoined not to do so for at least one year. 

Therefore, the Commission has redesignated Ms. Morgan as "Temporary Supply Pastor", effective 16 
December, 1992, G-14.0513d. 



ADJOURNMENT AND BENEDICTION 



There being no further business, the Twenty-Second Stated Meeting of Salem Presbytery was adjourned with 
prayer by the Moderator at 430 p.m. The next meeting of Salem Presbytery is set for Saturday, July 16, 1994, 
at 9:00 a.m. at the Graham Presbyterian Church in Graham, North Carolina.

APPENDIX C 

THE MAJORITY REPORT 

One cannot listen to the tapes of the plenary sessions of the conference without being impressed 
with the broad array of serious consideration that was given to the problems and status of women 
in the world and within Christianity. There can be no questions in the mind of any serious 
Christian person, scholar or not, that down through its history, Christianity has, for the most 
part, adopted many of the cultural norms of its society in every age, and has thereby participated 
in the degradation and oppression of women. This must be acknowledged in spite of the many 
times and situations when the Christian Church was the light of society when it came to matters 
of social justice, and when the remainder of the world seemed dark indeed. The hands of the 
Christian Church simply are not clean, and it will serve no purpose to claim, even to the extent 
that it is true, that our hands may be cleaner than the hands of others. Thus, the anger and the 
strongly anti-male bias that was reflected in the words of some of the major speakers are at least 
understandable. As Joseph Small and John Burgess, who are staff persons in the area of 
theology at the General Assembly offices, say in their personal statement which was reported in 
the March 7, 1994 edition of the PRESBYTERIAN OUTLOOK, "The Re-imagining Conference 
poses questions that the church cannot avoid. . .(and it) indicts the entire church for its insufficient 
attention to these concerns." We have no right to condemn the re-imagining conference, as 
though it had no right to have taken place, in the first place, and as though there were not issues 
to which it might fruitfully have spoken. In fact, many of the plenary speeches were worthy of 
great merit and consideration by all thoughtful Presbyterians. 

There has been voluminous reporting of the Re-Imagining Conference, from a wide variety of 
sources, both from positions of attack and defense. We have examined well over 200 pages of 
articles, reports, editorials, letters, and conference material. We have listened to over 16 hours 
of tapes of the plenary addresses and other speeches. We find overstatement and mis-leading 
presentation on both extremes. We do not believe that the cause of the abuse of the peace, unity, 
and purity here lies with those (primarily the PRESBYTERIAN LAYMAN and the 
PRESBYTERIAN OUTLOOK) who have called the church to account over the matter. We 
believe that the primary fault lies with our major association with the conference in the first place 
and with some of its content, and then with the wholly inadequate response of our 
denominational leaders. 

The remainder of this Majority Report includes the following sections: 

1 . Information about actions of General Assembly level entities and individuals 

2. Discussions and evaluations of various aspects of the conference and its follow-through, 
under the following categories: 

a) Sophia 

b) Atonement 

c) Milk and Honey Ceremony 

d) Sexuality

Recommendations 



ACTIONS OF GENERAL ASSEMBLY LEVEL ENTITIES AND INDIVIDUALS 

In the December 20-27 issue of the Presbyterian Outlook, Barbara Roche, editor of 
Horizons magazine offered a general, informational and favorable review of the 
conference. 

On January 11, 1994, James Brown, Executive Director of the General Assembly 
Council, (top executive within our denomination), sent a letter to all Presbyterian Pastors 
about the conference. His letter indicated that, already, calls and letters about the 
conference were coming into the General Assembly Headquarters and that the Executive 
Committee of the General Assembly Council had set in motion a process to prepare a 
packet of materials about the conference. His letter essentially attempted to dampen any 
distress that might be being felt within congregations about the conference, and he 
expressed the hope that the Church would not be overly distracted by the conference. 

On February 10, 1994, The Advisory Committee on Social Witness Policy circulated a 
lengthy memorandum about the conference. The basic thrust of this was to support the 
conference in its entirety, to endorse participation in the conference by Presbyterians, to 
support fully the idea that our denomination should be involved in the funding support 
for such ecumenical ventures, and to encourage the General Assembly Council to in no 
way support any calls for reprisals, or other disciplinary actions against Presbyterian staff 
members involved in any way with the conference. 

Sometime in February 1994, the Women's Ministries Program Area of the National 
Ministries Division of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) circulated an informational 
packet that described the conference in glowing terms, defended it in its entirety and 
strongly criticized the Presbyterian Layman for its criticism of the conference. 

The Executive Committee of the General Assembly Council met February 11-13, 
preceding the meeting of the GAC. Its purpose was to draft a statement for approval by 
the GAC on the subject of the conference with such statement to be sent throughout the 
church. It is reported that the Executive Committee recommended that the GAC make 
an immediate review of Ms. Lundy's continued effectiveness as Associate Director of 
Church- Wide Planning, and do it while in session, February 13-16, on the basis of her 
role as one of the planners of the "Re-imagining" conference. The report of the 
Executive Committee said of her that she (Ms. Lundy): failed to participate on a regular 
basis in the planning and oversight of the development of the project (conference) which, 



90 



while ecumenically sponsored, received significant financial support from the Presbyterian 
Church (U.S.A.), and that she was not significantly sensitive to the radical nature of 
some of the rituals utilized at the conference, and did not anticipate the possible 
repercussions of the conference within the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), and did not 
adequately brief the Executive Director and senior staff colleagues... concerning the 
potential controversy surrounding some aspects of the conference, and the detrimental 
effect such controversy could have on the peace, unity, and purity of the church. 

The GAC took no action on this recommendation, and instead adopted with little change 
the report to the church prepared by the Executive Committee. This report laments that 
the peace, unity, and purity of our church have been disturbed by the controversy and 
comment concerning the conference, and that thereby the attention of the GAC has been 
diverted from the mission goals of the church. The report goes on to make its 
recommendations which, essentially are as follows: 

A. Procedures for allocation of Bi-centennial Funds be reviewed, and 
guidelines proposed for the future. 

B. Though the GAC finds nothing wrong with anything that G.A. level staff 
did, with respect to the conference, yet, a review should be made of 
personnel policies with respect to appropriate use of study leave, and also 
that said review should consider guidelines for staff with respect to 
relationship to policies and statements adopted by the General Assembly 
or the GAC. This refers to those situations when an employee of the 
General Assembly may make a personal social witness that may be 
contrary to the social policies of the General Assembly. 

C. Current personnel policies be reviewed with respect to the role of 
Presbyterian staff members in the on-going debate about the place of 
homosexual men and women in the life of the church, and appropriate 
guidelines be developed. 

D. In view of the strong Presbyterian heritage in ecumenical discussions and
